Upcoming Events, 2017

Here are my upcoming events for 2017. I'll add more as the year unfolds, so do check back!

 

Third Thursday Chats

I'm offering these new Third Thursday Chats on topics of interest and value to business executives.  I expect they will be of special interest to thought leaders, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and other innovators.  Here's my plan for the rest of 2017; put the ones that interest you in your schedule now!

  • August:  Passion at Work – How Important Is It?:  Is having passion for your work over-rated or a key ingredient?
  • September:  Open Discussion -- you bring the topic!
  • October: Smart Connection/Fluid Leadership: Using dance as a metaphor to explore ways we’re not in touch with our impact on others.
  • November: Burnout! Are you (or might you be) a Workaholic?

If you've liked my blogletters, you'll LOVE these chats! We will chew on the challenges that threaten to keep us up at night, everything from burnout to personal branding to how to identify the thought leaders in your organization and strategies for helping them be their most productive.  A short and sweet half hour, I'll record them and share my resources on the topics we discuss – think of them as verbal blogletters. Come join us, or download the recordings here.

 

Tele-seminars

Fall 2017 
Business & Self-Reflection -- What are you expressing through your work?

Are you:

  • Corporate (or recently ex-corporate), trying to decide what the next phase of your life and career will look like?
  • A coach or consultant wanting further clarity on your niche?
  • A small business owner honing what exactly it is that you offer your clients?

If yes, join us for the fall series of Your Uniqueness Is Your Business, a small group (6 people max) teleseminar designed to help participants understand more deeply what is unique about them – their unassailable competitive advantage –and how to articulate and leverage that in the work they do.

A participant on a recent session said:  This whole process and journey has been really supportive for me.  Deborah has created an open and comfortable community for me to play with ideas, and her facilitation has been really helpful.  – Lucilla De Sarlowww.seavillaz.comUK & Italy.

Meet Me in London!

February through May, & September through mid-December:

  • COMING SOON!  VIP Days in London  This fall I will start offering 2-night VIP Away Days for busy executives and business owners who want to talk a step back identify their uniqueness & how to leverage it in their career.   Can't wait?  (me, neither!) Contact me for details -- if you want to be my first guinea pig, I'll give you a good deal!
  • Love to dance? Want to learn how? Swing Out London has the latest information on my favorite dance, Lindy Hop. Come explore partner dance as a metaphor for leading and following. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dance. Let me know when you want to go and I'll be happy to show you what I mean!
  • The Hill Station Community Cafe: this community cafe, conceived by Bold Vision, inspired me when I first found it, and continues to inspire me today. A powerful example of what like-minded – if diverse – people coming together can achieve.
  • If it's March/April, it's spring, and that means the Telegraph Hill Festival, one of my favorite events of the year in London.  Come join us!

 

Summers are for New England

June through August:

  • Montague Bookmill: WHAT? You are in New England and have not yet discovered this gem? Do it now! A converted mill filled with books new and used; a cafe; CD/music store; arts and crafts shop; fine dining – what more do you need for a blissful day out? And if you get hooked and want to stay the night, call my friend Donna at The House on the Hill Bed & Breakfast in nearby Leyden – she's often full, but you just might get lucky!
  • If you've still got time on your hands, go to Shelburne Falls and visit the Bridge of Flowers, the potholes, and some of the many galleries and shops.

 

Is it Christmas? I must be in Tucson!

December (and if I'm lucky, January and part of February...):

  • If you are a tennis player, run don't walk to the Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club. Dave's drop-in classes on Wednesday and Saturday will get you started. Nelson's clinics and Sam's lessons will help you polish any rusty skills – from there you'll find some of the nicest people in one of the friendliest clubs I've found. Or if you just want a workout, look up Zo in the gym – and be sure to ask him where he's singing next.  Exercise is great to clear out the cobwebs and de-stress.
  • Looking for some desert magic? Check out Global Chant on Tuesday nights. From aging hippies (and proud of it!) to nurses to business people; you'll find all kinds of people singing their hearts in at Global chant.
