Perhaps you are feeling a bit stagnant in your career, or searching for a new one? Or maybe you are approaching retirement age with lots of energy and drive, but not sure where to direct it? If, like many people today, you feel the need to kick-start a transition in your working life, then you might consider attending the Step into Your Future workshop being held at Kingston’s Rosemount Inn March 25-30, 2012.
Hosted by certified business coach and consultant Linda Oglov, the workshop is a 5-day event geared towards anyone looking to reassess, reshape or even reinvent their careers.
“I created this workshop because I saw that many people are either looking to improve their performance in their current job – trying to stay ahead in a competitive marketplace – or are perhaps coming up to traditional retirement age but really not being able or wanting to retire,” says Oglov. “People rarely get an opportunity to devote time to reassessing their work life situation and coming up with an Action Plan to move forward. This is a practical, pragmatic way to do just that.”
Linda Oglov has had a 40-year varied career in which she too has recreated her business several times. Born near Smiths Falls ON, she graduated in journalism and worked for small town newspapers for a few years before moving on to marketing and communications in the arts (National Arts Centre, Ottawa; EXPO 86 Vancouver) and sports (Commonwealth Games in Victoria, BC and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia). She was Vice President Marketing for the Vancouver Bid for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, and then went on to negotiate record-breaking sponsorship deals for Bell Canada, RBC Financial, Petro Canada and others for the Vancouver 2010 Games.
Linda now lives on Pender Island, BC and in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with her husband Stan, who is a sculptor. She is consultant to sponsors of the London 2012 and Sochi (Russia) 2014 Olympic Games. A graduate of the Royal Roads University Executive Coaching Programme, she has a busy business coaching and workshop practice.
