    The course schedule is as follows:

    • A required Pre-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2019, at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This helps the participants and facilitators understand areas to focus on throughout the course.
    • The classes meet over four weeks on:
      • Monday and Wednesday evenings (6:30-9:30 pm) and
        Saturday mornings (9:00 am - 1:00 pm).
      • A special social media session will be held one evening (6:30 - 9:30 pm) on a date to be determined with the class.
    • A required Post-Class Assessment consisting of mock interview sessions will be held on Thursday, August 15 at 6:00 pm at the 40Plus office.  This provides practice opportunities for newly acquired skills, and measures overall improvement in career transition skills.

      Please note: The Pre- and Post- Class Assessments not only provide valuable practice with mock interview and networking sessions, but they as well help participants and facilitators understand which areas they should focus on to improve.  Attendance to these is a requirement.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

    Faizun Kamal


    Faizun Kamal is a nationally renowned public speaker, best selling author and sought-after career strategist.

Her unique style of inspirational coaching coupled with swift doses of tough love encourages clients to embrace chaos, fear, insecurity and uncertainty as doorways of opportunity. She has helped countless individuals find their “perfect fit” franchise based on an assessment of their personal, lifestyle and income goals. She guides clients to proactively move beyond career burnout to build a sustainable career that they love!

    Faizun’s drive to create significant life changes through entrepreneurship stems from her own personal experience as a corporate refugee. As an executive in the high-stakes, high-stress world of corporate America, she found herself living an increasingly unhealthy, unbalanced life with little time for what she really loved to do, with loved ones. In 2015, after almost a decade in corporate America, she got her break by getting laid off. Instead of immediately jumping back, Faizun began a deeply introspective journey to intentionally redesign her career, and her life. 

    As a former Fortune 15 Executive with 19+ years of experience in entrepreneurial, corporate, multinational and nonprofit settings on three continents, Faizun tackles the topics of taking responsible risks to create career pivots, the art of finding the “perfect fit” business, and strategically making the leap from executive to entrepreneur.

    Faizun received her BA in Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a Master’s in Business Administration from the Johns Hopkins University. She is also a graduate of Stanford University’s acclaimed Social Entrepreneurship Program. Designated by designer Tory Burch as “a woman to watch”, Kamal has been featured extensively by the Tory Burch Foundation, Forbes, Franchise Dictionary Magazine, Mount Holyoke College Alumnae Quarterly, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School ONE Magazine, Ampleen, Empower Lounge, Social Fashion and Huffington Post Live, among others. She is a frequent guest on various nationally syndicated radio shows and podcasts speaking on the topic of entrepreneurship.

    Conversant in multiple languages, Kamal has been described as the “consummate connector”.  Coming from an unusual mix of work background (The Franchise Pros, World Bank, Johns Hopkins University and Verizon) and life experiences (growing up in Asia and Africa), she is able to see patterns in seemingly unconnected things and forge connections in the most unlikely places. 

    An accomplished speaker, Kamal brings her unique brand of wisdom, wit and entrepreneurial chutzpah to colleges, universities and leading business and entrepreneurial conferences.  Kamal enjoys mentoring and inspiring people to use their unique skills to make a difference in the world.

    Effective Time Management During Career Transitions 

    with Terry Monaghan, Organizing for Your Life, LLC 


     


    What would you do with four extra months?  Believe it or not, that's the amount of time you can recover through effective time management.

    In career transition, job seekers can often confuse activity with productivity, and extend their search period by being inefficient or disorganized, rather than focusing their efforts on the actions that will move them closer to a new role.

    Goals & Priorities: How can you focus on what’s important when you have way too much on your mind?

    Let’s face it. Time management is one of the most challenging aspects of our lives. How do we juggle everything there is for us to do and handle? And when you are in the midst of a transition, it can feel even more daunting. Are you supposed to spend every waking moment hunting? What about the rest of your life? How can you have fun when you “should” be doing X, Y and Z? 

    The basics of planning for and ultimately accomplishing any goal, project, task are the same, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.

    What you will learn in this session:

    * Learn the building blocks of success for any goal or project. 

    * Evaluate a goal that is important to you.

    * Re-energize & drop any guilt or disappointment associated with results.

    * Create a clear and personalized next steps action plan for success.Your performance “can be replicated and measured in the lab.”
