The Unlimited Newsletter...
This month has been an extremely exciting time for me as I have been travelling a lot to meet with clients, potential clients and media. Despite technology changing the landscape of how we communicate, I still value the opportunity to connect directly person-to-person as the best form of relationship building.
This month, I also had the honour of being ranked Top Online Influencer of the Women's Executive Network. If you are not a part of my online network, you can join me by simply clicking on one or more of the social media icons above on this newsletter. While you are there, watch my latest YouTube video sharing some tips to help women advance to leadership positions at their organizations. And I invite you to watch my latest interview on City TV's six o'clock news last week. Click here to hear more about the study suggesting organizations across North America are losing top talent to stress. Visit my website to find out ways I am helping companies combat this issue.
Enjoy the ride!
