HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2012) - The Houston Chapter of the American Marketing Association, the area's leading marketing organization, announces a special professional development seminar, "The Business of Your Career: Managing Your Career as a Business Enterprise," presented by Kim Sawyer, executive coach and facilitator. The breakfast seminar will be held at the United Way Community Resource Center on Thursday, September 27.
Marketers deal with constant change and uncertainty related to career choices and professional development. Staying on the cutting edge of the latest trends while balancing current initiatives can be difficult to manage. In many ways, a career involves the same balancing act most businesses deal with, requiring similar tools, rigor, and focus. On September 27, Executive Coach Kim Sawyer will utilize this concept and teach attendees how to run their career as a business enterprise.
Attendees will walk away with:
- A highly valuable framework for understanding your career
- A set of provocative concepts as food for thought
- Practically useful tools for career development
"We are excited to be hosting this special career development seminar for Houston marketing professionals," said Robin Tooms, AMA Houston President. "It is the goal of AMA Houston to provide the most informative and educational events for our members, and it is through seminars like this where we hope Houston marketers will be able to walk away with the tools they need to succeed."
Kim Sawyer has over twenty years of diverse experience, with expertise in the area of leadership, professional and business effectiveness and entrepreneurship. He coaches and facilitates key business people to create greater wealth for their organizations and themselves.
The luncheon will be held at the United Way Community Resource Center, 50 Waugh Drive, on September 27 at 7:30 a.m. Register online at www.regonline.com/careerbusiness by Wednesday, September 26 at 12 p.m.
