Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

Sorry for the delay . . . we just nailed down (not literally) our speaker for tomorrow’s meeting. She’s returning to the Launch Pad dais for what promises to be a terrific presentation.

 Crystal Dyer, President of Professional Coaching Consultants, Lt Governor of Toastmasters International, and a former member of the Army Chaplain Corps, will speak on Communicating Competence with Confidence.  Whether providing spiritual counseling, working as an organizational development consultant, or delivering a Toastmaster table topic talk, Crystal understands the necessity for clear and concise communication. This is a skill that most of us lack. She will present a step-by-step instructions as to how to articulate our skills clearly to an employer, especially within the narrow time constraints that characterize many interviews.

This will definitely be worth your time. Don’t miss it.

 Crystal will present during our regular meeting this Friday from 10-11:30.  After the meeting, consider hanging around for a special meeting of the Launch Pad Job Club Toastmaster Group. They will be celebrating their 4th anniversary. Crystal is their special guest and will be making a presentation there as well.  The TM Group will meet from noon-1:00 p.m. in the same room as the Launch Pad meeting.

As always, the meetings are free. All are welcome.

Location: The meeting will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, on the corner of MF and Huntland. The Events Center faces Huntland and is located next to the movie theatre.
First-timers: People attending Launch Pad for the first time should arrive by 9:15 a.m. to be able to sign in, grab some refreshments, and be ready for New Member Orientation that takes place from 9:30-10:00 a.m.
By the way, attending a Job Club meeting does count as a bona fide job search contact by the Texas Workforce Commission because we announce so many job openings during our meetings.
This week is a two-fer:  Resume Tweaking will take place Friday the 11th as well from 2:00-4:30 pm at the Consulting Solutions.Net office at 1016 La Posada, suite 297. Bring 5 copies of your resume.  Our Ph.D. resume expert WILL be there to provide her unique guidance.
