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.

    Success Stories from the Job Hunt

    with Mika Yamashita, Ken Schoppmann and John Wilhelm Jr.


    This special edition of the Monday speaker series features a panel of successful job seekers who share their stories from the employment front.

     The panelists come from a range of different work backgrounds -- a finance specialist, an executive with associations, and a program analyst/budget analyst. They all went through a career transition period -- and came out of it successfully.

    They will discuss:

    >>What lessons were learned about navigating the mid-career search for a new role in a new organization? 

    >>What resources or training made the most difference? 

    >>What mistakes did they have to correct before they could land the job they really wanted?

    >>What was the biggest challenge they each had to overcome?

    About the speakers

    The panelists are graduates of the 40Plus Job Search Training Program.

    Mika Yamashita does performance measurement support with the Washington Area Community Investment Fund.




    Ken Schoppmann is executive director at the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities and is a Certified Association Executive. He's also a board member of 40Plus.



    CPA John Wilhelm Jr. is field agent for Knights of Columbus Insurance -- and the volunteer Executive Director of 40Plus.

     Professional Reinvention Insights from the Pages of Leader to Leader, with author Bruce Rosenstein


    Today’s organizational professionals must become change leaders, within their own lives and those of their organizations. We often hear of the need to reinvent ourselves, but how is this really accomplished.

    In this session, Bruce Rosenstein, Managing Editor of the award-winning journal Leader to Leader, and author of Create Your Future the Peter Drucker Way, and Living in More Than One World: How Peter Drucker's Wisdom Can Inspire and Transform Your Life will guide us to planning and executing our own reinventions via the ideas and experiences of Leader to Leader authors such as Whitney Johnson, Daniel Goleman, Herminia Ibarra, Bob Buford, and Mo-Yee Lam.

    We will explore how to apply lessons such as Johnson’s concept of self-disruption; Goleman’s focus on a longer future with a wider professional lens; Ibarra’s “outsight” principal; Buford’s adaptation of five reflection questions of Peter Drucker; and Lam’s transformation from a sedentary lifestyle into an ultra-marathon athlete. Each example provides a key to how we can reinvent our own lives, inside and outside the workplace.
