Kind Words from Happy Audiences
I just wanted to send along my sincere appreciation for giving such an amazing keynote at Caroline’s. Being a graduate student, it seems as if I’ve received so much networking advice over the past six years. However, your talk brought the concept of networking to a much more relevant level. You really understand social media and its power in making us more competitive candidates when we enter the work force. After collecting so much generic advice over the years, it was refreshing to hear someone speak my language and talk about the importance of maintaining an online presence (something I love, anyway) and keeping in contact with networks (something I struggle with, but wasn’t aware of until you mentioned it).
I run a online listserve dedicated to career networking issues for parents in my Brooklyn community. Many of our members were at a crossroads in their career and struggling with work/family balance issues – asking themselves, “What’s Next for My Career?”. Maggie put together a fantastic, spot on presentation that really resonated with our group. The highlight was her “hands on” workshop style. Instead of simply presenting material and sending the participants away with “homework”, she uses the time together to actively explore the topics. The “sound” of 35 people quietly thinking and writing their “Mission & Vision” statements was very powerful. Then, she offered people the opportunity to read their statements and get feedback from her in real time.
Maggie’s presentation was just the tip of the iceberg. Our members were so fired up by the event, a group of 15 people continue to meet monthly to discuss and actively work on their career goals and challenges.
Thank you for leading the “Work Smarter Not Harder” webinar last week as well as leading the networking webinar last February. Your guidance is invaluable.
I am a 2003 Villanova grad who talked to you a few years ago when I was living in NYC and working for an investment bank I wasn’t sure of my path, and you were able to help me recognize that whatever it is I want to do I can make happen. I ended up moving back to Boston and worked for a subsidiary of my employer while finishing my MBA. I did a concentration in Leadership & Management to guide me down the Human Resources/Organization Development path and am now working at a Fortune 100 corporation in HR…something I have wanted to do for years! I was able to make the career switch through networking, luck, and preparation.
Thank you again for sharing your story and tips. They have helped me a lot!!
