I am also the author of Strategic Career Engagement: The Definitive Guide for Getting Hired and Promoted, which was released September 15th of 2015.

I have nearly 30 years experience leading and managing people and projects for the U.S. Department of Commerce (NOAA), Phillips Petroleum Company (now Conoco-Phillips), Motorola Semiconductor Products Sector, Intel Corporation, and other companies. In those positions, I have been involved with the hiring and management of hundreds of professionals in scientific/engineering, marketing, and communications positions.
Today, I speak at conferences and in corporations where I share my knowledge and experience through programs on Influential and Persuasive Intelligence™ and Presence-Driven Leadership. These programs help eliminate the stress, anxiety, and frustration CEOs experience when ineffective leaders make it to the C-Suite, while increasing employee engagement and productivity.
