Sharing job leads – a core value

Editorial by Matt Bud from the May 23, 2019 Newsletter

I was in Chicago several years ago and had the great pleasure of having breakfast with Brad Hughes, one of our “Founding Great Grandfathers.” According to legend (and I can say that since The FENG is over 25 years old), Brad was one of the very few folks who ALWAYS brought job leads to pass around at our meeting at the Westport library. We were a grand total of about 15 people on a good day back then, but everyone followed Brad’s fine example and made an effort to find and share job leads.

Topic: Achieve Superior Performance Through Self-Management

Speaker: Anita Pizycki CPA, CA

- 5:30-6:00 Registration
- 6:00-8:00 Presentation
- 8:00-8:30 Networking

People tend to confuse productivity and performance, with the two often becoming interchangeable. Productivity is the measure of the efficiency of production whereas performance deals with how someone functions to accomplish something successfully.

This event will be of interest to any Finance Executive who desires to:
1. Source that contract or next job quicker
2. Stand apart from the competition and win
3. Deliver greater favourable results to your client or employer
4. And more if you do the following:
- Understand why they mismanage time and what they can do about it.
- Tips to maximize their energy for increased performance and success
- Work less and be more productive
- Improve the overall quality of their daily productivity and performance

Our Speaker:
Anita Pizycki CPA, CA has worked in public practice (big firm, regional firm and owned her own firm), industry and government so she is familiar with the time and energy issues of people in the finance profession. During that time found she loved working with people more than numbers. She took her coaches training in 2002 from The Coaches Training Institute and founded the Professional Coaching Company in 2003 which provides coaching and consulting services to professionals, including accountants and lawyers.

Anita helps her clients first get clear on what is success for them, otherwise, you can be efficiently working toward the wrong outcome

Topic: Working with Search Firms

Speaker: Stephen P. Konstans, Vice-President Pearson Partners International

Stephen will talk about how to effectively deal with retained recruiters and high-level search professionals. Learning objectives include how to build and nurture search firm relationships.

Speaker's bio:
An experienced veteran of the retained executive search business, Stephen Konstans has spent more than 20 years helping companies secure candidates for critical executive roles. He has special expertise in filling high-level finance and accounting positions, such as chief financial officer or controller.

Prior to joining Pearson Partners in 2005, Stephen spent five years running his own executive search and consulting practice. Building on an early career in auditing with both Arthur Andersen and KPMG, he entered the recruitment field in 1990 by joining Robert Half International, where he twice was ranked among the top 15 recruiters worldwide for accounting and financial professionals—including being ranked No. 1 in the world for one of those quarters. He later worked his way up at D. E. Foster Partners, Inc., the successor firm to KPMG's executive search practice, where he began as a senior consultant and was ultimately promoted to the director level.

Stephen served as a moderator and panelist on separate panels for the Dallas chapters of Financial Executives International and the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants, both times addressing the topic of helping chief financial officers attain a chief executive officer role. He also served as a panelist and moderator for a Dallas FEI chapter panel addressing "The CFO Perspective on Private Equity Backed Organizations."

Stephen is a former Certified Public Accountant. He earned his bachelor's degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from Southern Methodist University and has continued graduate studies at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Stephen has served on the boards of directors for Trinity Christian Academy Alumni Association and SMU's Business Associates Program, the latter of which named him a "Mentor of the Year.“ He also serves on the advisory board for the Institute for Excellence in Corporate Governance.

- 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.

We look forward to seeing you.

This is a joint meeting of the Lancaster and Reading chapters.


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.

Please be prepared to:

Introduce yourself and give your 30-second elevator speech. This is an ideal opportunity to practice a critical marketing tool as well as get feedback from the group. If each of us knows exactly what you do, specialize in, and are looking for it will make it easier to pass on relevant leads or information. Bring business cards, if you have them.
Tell the group where you need help with your search. Being specific as to what you need to advance your search over the next month allows the group to suggest contacts and advice relevant to you.
Share any job leads you may have uncovered.
