HZBA Monthly Event - March 8

The March meeting is hosted by the Hereford Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library and will be held on Thursday, March 8, from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Heike Heemann, a Business Coach with IdeaShare Business Coaching will be discussing the topic "Expanding your professional circles to help your organization and your career."

Heike Heemann

We have all heard that it is important "who you know" but that by itself is not enough.  The size and quality of your network has a significant impact on your career prospects, as well as on your organization's growth potential, regardless of your current title or day-to-day responsibilities.  Your network determines your reach and influence in your local business community and potentially across the country. The quality of your circles impacts your career trajectory and the support you have along the way.  This seminar will provide reasons why proactively expanding your professional circles is essential and offer 8 tips on how to do so.

Heike Heemann is a Certified Professional Business Coach who works with executives on improving their personal effectiveness and - by extension - their professional success. She is also available for workshops and speaking engagements.  In addition, Heike offers Extended DISC Assessments, LinkedIn profile reviews and takes on one large consulting project a year. 

Heike has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish from Hood College, a Masters in International Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management her certification through the Professional Business Coaches Alliance and over 23 years of business experience.
