I have spent the last few years of my career helping engineers develop their careers in many different ways. Whether it has been through coaching or speaking, I have gained a tremendous amount of insights as to the biggest career and personal challenges that engineers face regardless of age or experience level.
The biggest challenges that engineers face (and many other professionals for that matter) include:
- Work-family balance (the biggest challenge far away)
- Difficulty in networking and building relationships
- Fear of public speaking/presenting
- Lack of clarity in regards to what is really important in their career (goal setting)
In an effort to help engineers overcome these challenges, I will be putting on a transformational weekend meetup just for engineers in Chicago in April.
This is not, I repeat is NOT your typical conference. This meetup has been designed to be a career and life-changing event. Topics discussed will include stress reduction, balance, improvement of public speaking skills, increasing productivity and more. The weekend also includes a tour of the Fermi National Academy Accelerator Academy, also known as the Fermilab. The Fermilab is a US Department of Energy National laboratory that specializes in high-energy particle physics.
You will also have the opportunity to network with some of the most motivated and talented engineers in the country, which in itself may make for an exhilarating experience.
In addition to the meetup sessions and tours, registration includes two dinners at top Chicago restaurants. Register before February 15th to receive early bird registration fees. We do have special rates for engineering students and unemployed engineers.
The website for the event is: http://iecdmeetup.com
Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to start creating an extraordinary engineering career and life.
