Networking is easy

Editorial by Matt Bud from the February 23, 2017 Newsletter

I am never surprised when a member tells me that he isn’t good at networking. As financial professionals, we tend to “come with the woodwork.” In any major corporation, the accounting department is usually where you will find most of the longest service employees. And, it is not only our staff that tends to stay, but us too. As you may know, I was in the advertising business for 9 years. I had occasion to chat with a friend of mine who was an art director at another agency.

The Discussion Topic for this meeting is
Do you have a marketing plan for 2017?

Our goal as a group is to help people evaluate their “Regular Full Time Opportunities” and go to market strategies. We discuss new technologies and how to leverage plus work on the basics of how to refine your elevator pitch. What is working for you and what is not working for you?
As our facilitator Norbert Walz has said, “the best time to look for an opportunity is when you don’t need to”. So bring to the meeting your personal and business development goals and prepare to contribute and enjoy the difference a community can bring. (comment contributed by Steve Peterson

”Your Career Curriculum”.
What can I do to "Keep Pace" with Digital Disruption so that my skill sets remain current?
The presentation which is entitled "Your Career Curriculum" will guide participants thru the following:
• Examine various Digital Technologies by identifying the disruption they are causing - and the opportunities they are creating
• Reviewing root causes as to why it’s hard to stay current
• Introduce the concept of a "Career Horizon" and why it’s critical to evolving your career
• Developing your own "Career Curriculum" - and identifying the Core and Elective Classes specific to you
• Techniques and technologies you can leverage to begin implementing that curriculum

George Pace has over 32 years of IT experience spanning a wide range of disciplines and diverse technologies. While he 'keeps pace' with many different technologies, he has a particular interest in Social Networking (and the value it potentially provides to both organizations and individuals) as well as Big Data and its organization value. Mr. Pace holds a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Seton Hall University and an MBA from the Rutgers School of Management.

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

DRESS: informal (jeans are fine)

Please note this is just a few blocks down the street from CentraState Hospital.

COST: This is an informal meeting. We will ask everyone to buy their own coffee and snack and join us at the biggest table we can find.

The objective of our meetings is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Each attendee will get a chance to deliver their two-minute elevator speech, share recent successes and failures, present their networking requests, discuss their job search questions and any concerns they may be struggling with, and apprise the group of any new searches, requests, etc. that they have become aware of.

Please bring at least twenty-five copies of your “one pager”. This should provide your contact information at the top, followed by a brief overview of your background, and finally your target company list and a list of people you would like to meet. They should be handed out to the attendees just before you make your presentation, thus helping them to provide you with targeted assistance and advice.

Please have copies of your resume available to handout to those interested parties who may want to learn more about you or pass it on to individuals they think may be interested in talking to you. Also, bring a nametag to wear and a “name” tent card to place on the table in front of you.

Attire is business casual.

Members of BENG and FEI are also invited to attend.

- Organize your financial, health, and personal documents with New York Life’s LifeFolio Kit.

Agenda

Register today to join FEI for their Career Management session with Nancy Burke and Richard Dodson based on their book "Power your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work" on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017!


Tactful self-promotion is a critical competency for finance leaders, whether you are: a leader wanting to create more visibility for your department and yourself; at mid-career and interested in expanding your influence; or just starting out your career. Everyone needs to increase their visibility if they want the opportunities, recognition and the rewards that they deserve.

You will learn practical strategies for:
• Positioning yourself in ways that highlight your value, differentiators and accomplishments
• Cultivating strategic relationships and expand your network of influence
• Gaining constructive visibility by managing meetings, and working a room
• Leveraging social media, especially with LinkedIn, and building an online platform
• Promoting your team and your department
This is a fast-paced, interactive presentation that will help even the most reserved to increase their visibility without violating their integrity and values (and without triggering a panic attack!).

Nancy Burke and Richard Dodson have a total of 40+ years in career coaching. Based on their work with, literally, thousands of people who were interested in advancing their careers, the presenters have created a model, strategies and tactics.

Every attendee will receive a free copy of this great book!

1 CPE Credit in the field of Personal Development offered.
