Monday Morning Speakers 2018

Monday Speakers meetings are open to the public and free of charge. You are cordially invited to attend.

Each meeting features a speaker who covers topics of interest to those who are involved in or contemplating a job search or career change. The meeting begins with a networking session at 9:45 AM. We ask everyone to be seated by 9:55 AM so that the speaker can start promptly at 10:00 AM.

No reservations are needed. Come network with 40Plus members, other guests, and the speaker. The meeting is also an opportunity for anyone who is considering joining 40Plus to see and experience our organization.

Many of us continue our networking conversations over lunch at one of the nearby restaurants. Plan to join us.

    The Perennial Workforce:  Baby Boomers Blooming


    Perennials are enduring or continually recurring -- most notably as plant life. If you are retired, considering retirement, or a mature worker looking to get back in the marketplace, you are a member of the Perennial Workforce.  Perennials come back the next season stronger and heartier than the last.




    Marva Goldsmith

    CEO
    Consult DSA

      



    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
       

    I’ve been a member of the Perennial Workforce since 2001.  At the age of 42, I left the Fortune 500 utility company where I had worked since the age of 17, moved to Washington DC and reinvented my professional life to better align with my passion. This electrical engineer became an image and brand consultant! During the next 16 years, I worked with CEOs, nonprofits, government agencies, corporations, incarcerated youth and a host of individuals to help define and implement their intentional image/brand. In 2016, an opportunity to form a new company with a business partner was presented. As CEO of Consult DSA, a Woman-Owned Small Business, I have come full circle, combining logic with creativity to provide management consulting services and organizational effectiveness solutions to a variety of companies and governmental agencies.

    An electrical engineer from Michigan State University, Marva obtained a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government at the age of 42. She is a Leadership Coach from the ICF-accredited Georgetown University.
