Description for publicity:
During a lifetime in business, we see and hear many ways to
develop ourselves as professionals. We jot a note here and there and think "I'm going
to do that, starting next week!" Unfortunately, by the time next week gets here we
have lost either the idea or the enthusiasm to do it. At least Gerry Reid kept his notes!
In this session Gerry shares his growing collection of

"Finally, a targeted session that brings balanced
maturity to the technology explosion!"

This speech is a presentation of more than two dozen
characteristics of successful and admired professional people. Each point in the
presentation is an excerpt from my book ASK for Success published by Edwin Thomas &
Sons. Audience participation includes the gathering of characteristics of successful
technical people. Short exercises dramatically illustrate that positive attitude traits
are more in demand than skill and knowledge abilities. All attendees leave with an outline
for improving their professional image.
