Defining who you are

Editorial by Matt Bud from the August 30, 2016 Newsletter

Probably one of the hardest things to do in life is to define who you are. Are you really your resume? Because we tend to be at companies longer than the members of other discipline areas, the reality of what it is we REALLY do best is not always obvious to us. A very long time ago when one of my friends by the name of Bob Graham, came to speak at our meeting in Connecticut, he shared with us a great interview question: What’s the biggest misperception about you? Believing that others have a misperception about you actually implies that there is something about yourself that you don’t accept. Unfortunately, most of us are often the last to know [ Read more… ]

Agenda

TOPIC / GUEST SPEAKER: TOPIC / GUEST SPEAKER: Lloyd Feinstein of Career Marketing Associates.

“Breakout of your industry using these two TRANSFERABLE SKILLS”

This meeting will show you how to position yourself to change industries while increasing your compensation.

Part 1: How the job market functions, role of the recruiter and how best to present your VALUE.

Part 2: Surprise: There are only two transferable skills!

Successful Client Example: Consumer Goods (General Foods & Kraft Foods) to Biomedical (Biogen Idec.) Job Title: Director - International Controller with a 15% increase in salary and achieved through the efforts of an executive recruiter.

Lloyd has been a long time friend to FENG and this chapter. He is the one who introduced us to the “PAR” approach - problem, action, result - so many years ago. The chapter has not had a speaker in a long time, but attendance has picked up so I want to give this a try. Lloyd is an excellent speaker to restart the evening format. If you want to have speakers at our evening sessions, I urge you to come.

About Lloyd:
Lloyd Feinstein is a seasoned professional career counselor who has worked with more than 2700 executives and professionals, both individually and in seminars. For the past 18 years, Mr. Feinstein has been a full-time career consultant and advisor to senior management executives and professionals and an accomplished speaker on career management topics for the serious-minded career professional. Before founding Career Marketing Consultants, he was Director of Human Resources for Oppenheimer & Co. on Wall Street and Director of Human Resources for Cadence Industries Corp. in West Caldwell, N.J.

He is an Associate Member of Financial Executives Networking Group (FENG), where he is a frequent speaker at local chapter meetings. He co-authored Career Changing: The Worry-Free Guide, published by Little, Brown & Co. and articles for The Wall Street Journal publication National Business Employment Weekly. His most recent published article is "Step Up To The Plate in Today's Hiring Game" in Pulse (published by the Association for Financial Professionals).

MEETING TOPICS / AGENDA:

Part 1: 5 - 15 minutes: Informal networking / Announcements. I will dedicate the first few minutes of the meeting to informal networking. I would like to take this time to get your thoughts concerning attendance and the speaker format.

Part 2: “Present your “30 Second” Commercial (10 minutes). Please get to the point. It’s NOT about you. This is a marketing presentation. Be specific – what makes you special? What are you offering? How do you add value? No one wants to know why you left your previous job or how many years you have been working. Please note that because of time, I will ask everyone to keep his / her commercial to 30 seconds. I will cut people off after 40 seconds.

Part 3: “Breakout of your industry using these two TRANSFERABLE SKILLS,” by Lloyd Feinstein.

Part 4: Informal Networking, Part 2 (if time allows)

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS
• Our next evening meeting at the West Windsor library will be Thursday October 6. Speaker to be determined
• Our next informal breakfasts will be held on September 17 and October 15 at Panera Bread, 510 Nassau Park Boulevard, Princeton starting at 8:30AM. (Note: this is NOT the Panera Bread in downtown Princeton).
• We have 400+ members in the LinkedIn Princeton FENG Group. I urge you all to join.
__________________________________________________________________






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. In order to facilitate the conversation, I often ask people:

* What is your competitive advantage?
* What do you do differently that marks you out from others?
* How do you provide value?
* What are you known for? What do you want to be known for in a couple of years’ time?

These are a bit like interview questions, but often I am trying to find the gold in your value proposition that might not be as clear to others as it is to you. (Questions taken from a newsletter article – Jan 21, 2014 – provided by Ken Witt, Raleigh FENG Chapter).

Agenda

The FENG Ocean/Monmouth breakfasts are designed for members to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting. There is no agenda – this will give you time in a different forum to interact, receive individualized attention, and help each other.

Although the meeting is informal, here’s how we structure it:
• For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.
• At 8:45, I will make a few announcements. I’ll ask 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 8-10 people facilitated by a leader. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be done on a random basis which facilitates a good mix.
• 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. In order to facilitate the conversation, I often ask people:
> What is your competitive advantage?
> What do you do differently that marks you out from others?
> How do you provide value?
> What are you known for? What do you want to be known for in a couple of years’ time?

• Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:45 break.

RSVP: For this meeting only: fengforum@thefengstl.org

Reservation deadline is September 6, 2016

Presentation:
Join us for a presentation on THE NEW WORLD OF INVESTING AND RAISING CAPITAL brought on by The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) act. Attorney Michael Sewell of Sewell Law will walk us through The principal parts of the act (including crowd funding) and explain the new opportunities for private companies to acquire investors and for investors to have new investing opportunities.

Private U.S. companies raise approximately $2 trillion annually in investment capital. That's 1.5 times the amount raised annually by public U.S. companies on the national securities exchanges. Yet few Americans know anything about the private investment market. For good reason. From 1933 to 2015, it was illegal for all but the wealthiest 5% of Americans to invest in private companies. That is changing with the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act.

Under the JOBS Act, anyone can invest in private companies. Billions of dollars are currently being raised under the JOBS Act, which is the start of a long term paradigm shift in how companies raise capital.

About the Speaker:
Michael Sewell has practiced law in Missouri for more than a decade. He has litigated more than 100 cases in federal, state and municipal courts and represented clients in mediation and arbitration. He has also formed more than 100 limited liability companies. Michael formed Sewell Law in January of 2015, to provide professional legal services in the areas of litigation, business formation and equity and debt crowdfunding.

Prior to practicing law, Michael Sewell led strategic planning and market development for multi-billion dollar corporations like SuperValu, Save-A-Lot, Ltd., D'Arcy Advertising, Burger King and Maritz.

Michael Sewell holds an MBA from Lindenwood University, and a law degree from St. Louis University School of Law.

Agenda

Chapter meetings represent a golden opportunity.

Our objective is to support each other, give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, share leads and discuss general intelligence about the market.

As always, this is a great opportunity to network, practice your “elevator” speech with fellow FENG members. Practicing your 90-second announcement in the comfort of your own home is a good thing to do, but it is hardly enough. The missing element is a live audience. The additional benefit is that the live audience you will encounter at a meeting of The FENG will also be a friendly audience so you can improve this important tool.

Please bring:
- Name Badge
- Personal Contact cards
- Resumes
- If you represent a business, please bring business cards and/or flyers.
- Your 90-second elevator speech

Attire: is business casual.

Your chapter leadership will be delighted to see you there.

Presentation Title: Confessions of a CFO: How to Lead with Passion and Find Success

Presentation Description: Are you having trouble identifying the blocks that are keeping you from achieving the level of success you know is possible?

Red Katz knows what you’re up against – and he’s here to help! Red has experienced both highs and lows and he’ll give you the keys to build resiliency and help you overcome your real-world challenges with real-world strategies. No theory, no fluff, and no filler.

- Learn how to unleash real passion in your business and life.

- Walk away with a Personalized Blueprint for achieving success.

Red's Bio:

Professional speaker Red Katz empowers attendees to achieve more by helping you rediscover, recharge, and reboot your passions – unleashing more profits, higher productivity and greater performance.

Forget motivational speaking, this is motivational “peaking”- Red’s big breakthrough was the discovery that PASSION is an organization’s most precious and underutilized resource.

Red has built 3 different organizations, hired, fired, motivated, coached, and managed hundreds of people. His own business experiences have taught him that top performers all share the following X-factors of success:

- Positive, “I can do it no matter what” attitude
- Powerful passion
- Strong support system

Among his many accomplishments Red has built businesses, motivated large teams, raised capital and streamlined processes to dramatically exceed revenue and profit objectives. Red built “The Accessories Place” into a major vendor of fashion accessories with multimillion dollar sales and double-digit year over year profitability.

Agenda

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 fifteen 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.

Our objective is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers from various disciplines, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Attire: Business casual

This is joint FENG/BENG event.

There is a Café on the main floor serving coffee, sandwiches etc.

The primary purpose of Chapter meetings is to provide an opportunity for you to meet, network, and learn from your FENG friends. We normally break into small groups for two or three 20-to-30 minute Tabletop Networking sessions. Session begins with each person taking 60-90 seconds to introduce themselves (strict limit; great "elevator speech" practice for an initial contact with a potential networking source) covering:
- Who I am
- Where I work or worked last
- What I'm looking for
- What I need help with

The rest of Tabletop session is informal conversation focusing on your distinctive competencies, future plans, and target companies, and how FENG members can help in your search. It is especially useful for those in active search to bring resumes and business cards to hand out so your new friends can read about your background and have a record for future network contacts/opportunities.

Dress is business casual. Bring some resumes and business cards to exchange.

Agenda

TOPIC:
Training Your Brain and Mindset for Success
Speaker: Jeanine Joy, Ph.D., CFIRS, AIRC, FLMI, CHC, ACS

A small percentage of our thoughts/words/actions are the result of original thought. The vast majority are simply habits of thought we repeat throughout the days, weeks, and years of our life. This is very helpful in that we don’t have to deeply consider every situation that arises but it can also be very disruptive if the programming is not set to maximize our results.

Results refers to every area of life including physical, mental, and behavioral health, relationships, career, and even leisure. Yes, leisure. Believe it or not, there are people whose programming makes it difficult to enjoy leisure time and who find enjoying a vacation very difficult.

In any given moment, our subconscious mind deals with about 10 million bits of information while our conscious mind processes about 50 bits of data. (That’s what the experts say, I think the conscious mind processes more because anyone who deals with images knows they are data hogs but even I would put it at about 500 vs 10 million.)

The subconscious mind filters the incoming information using existing habits of thought (beliefs, expectations, emotional state, and focus). If the filters being used aren’t set to maximize your results the outcome will be less than it could be.

In this session, you’ll learn how to recognize when thoughts/words/actions would benefit from original thought. You’ll also learn a couple of techniques that empower you to change the filters your mind uses to enhance the level of success you’ll be able to achieve. These techniques help the employed become better achieving the results you want and can help those seeking new opportunities interview better.

Jeanine Joy is the founder of Happiness 1st Institute, a Thrive More Now Company and the author of five books that apply her metacognitive processes to area that pose significant challenges.
