|THE GENERAL LOCATION:
||Guelph, Ontario Canada - one hour north west of Toronto
|| I am the owner and manager of THINK-IT! which I founded five years ago.
||I am a 56 year old business professional having held upper management positions in both Puma Canada and Wolverine Canada. My birth country is South Africa from where I moved to Canada 30 years ago. My first position in Canada was head manager of a very large McDonald's restaurant. I am a volunteer with Junior Achievement and work with a charitable organization raisiing money and collecting clothing and sports equipment for native bands in Northern Ontario. I have recently finished a 3-1/2 year term on the board of the Guelph Youth Soccer Club (4000+ players and 500 volunteers)
My biggest achievement is my family - wife, daughter and son.
|FUTURE PROFESSIONAL GOALS:
||My future professional goals are to continue helping people, companies and organizations improve their workplace harmony via our interactive, fun and learning workshops. In the words of Ben Franklin - "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn".
||I believe that networking involves giving, learning, gathering information and marketing oneself. If you can do this successfully, you will 'get' in return. My networking relationships should be with educators, sales professionals,corporate managers and executives.
To these associates I can bring my years of business experience in sales, marketing, training and managing people. Not working or living in the US, cuts down on the connections I can introduce them to, but until one has made these connections, one does not know where they could lead. I look forward to meeting new people in order to share knowledge and hopefully help some in the process.
