Set Yourself Free...Daydream It, Believe It, Achieve It
The past few years have been a true test for everyone, but in particular for people in the meetings/hospitality industry. Some saw their jobs eliminated or downsized. Others were given more responsibility with the same (or decreased) compensation. Service standards suffered. With that experience as a backdrop, it's a good time to step back, re-evaluate our careers and life path, and contemplate a possible change in direction and attitude.
In this entertaining, interactive and informative session, speaker Mike Lyons guides the audience through a discussion asking them to reflect honestly on their life/career goals and assess where they stand in relation to their "bucket list". At the end of the session, participants will walk away with tangible and manageable tips to implement that will help them to stay focused on their life/career goals. In addition to his hospitality, speaking and acting careers, Lyons has also been an entrepreneur who has started 4 companies (all with varying degrees of risk) on the side, so he is not averse to risk-taking and "going for it". He will share some of those stories as examples.

How you present yourself, how you behave and how you are perceived by your professional peers will determine your personal brand and the level of success in your career. After all, if you don’t brand yourself, other people will. And, chances are they won’t brand you in the way you want to be branded.
