Owning The Room! A One Day Leadership Development Workshop

Cynthia Burnham, MBA, Board Certified Coach, and author of “The Charisma Edge”
Wednesday - Octrober 22, 2014

This whole day workshop will expand on the skills presented in the September Professional Development Meeting - a must attend event to help you leverage an important learnable skill.

We all know about charisma - personal presence, confidence, and ability to step forward with clarity and focus, and to draw others to you. And we all know, right or wrong, that people who have charisma stand out. These factors are key distinguishing elements to help you make positive first and lasting impressions, connect quickly with those around you, and be heard in challenging, competitive environments. Without these skills, you risk being lost in the sea of others with great technical skills but an inability to make a meaningful impact on the important people around them.

Here's a sneak preview.   Details.

A Letter From Our President

Andy Pattantyus – President July 2013 to June 2015

Dear Members and Friends:

The APICS San Fernando Valley chapter (APICS-SFV) began its fiscal year on July 1st and I began my second year of a two year term as President. Thanks to a strong and vibrant board, we ended last fiscal year in a strong financial position. By providing real value, APICS-SFV membership grew by 33% last year! Our members actively participate by attending both programs and classes, and many are pursuing certification. Our programs and education offerings are designed to support the needs of our members and the local business community. We are here to serve you!
What is APICS all about? This is the question I get asked most often.... 
APICS-SFV is all about:
1. Developing professionals
2. Providing education
3. Providing certification
