Leadership Seminar for Executive Growth

On September 27, 2019, Dr. Amicitia Maloon-Gibson, held a workshop at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Cocoa.  The title was The Next Executive You – Leadership Seminar for Executive Growth.  I registered for the workshop, first of all, because as a retiree, I can utilize what I learn as I support several nonprofits, including my church.  Second, attending workshops strengthens the skills that I acquired while working on the Shuttle Program for Rockwell International and United Space Alliance.  Third, I strongly believe that regardless of how many business courses, workshops and seminars I’ve taken in the past, there is always room to learn more. Did I learn from this workshop, you bet I did?  It was impossible not to learn from those professional presenters. 

Dr. Maloon-Gibson’s presenters did a fine job.

Shawn Dorrough has worked in the financial industry for over 23 years, written several books and is passionate about helping people increase their financial knowledge, so they can build wealth.

Melanie Bonita is an Amazon bestselling author of six books, award winning international inspirational speaker, marketing coach and a United States Army veteran. Ms. Bonita shared a wealth of knowledge about writing books. Her presentation was the most informative for me.

Sir Charles Cary is the only Peak Performance Strategist in the USA that shows organizations and individuals how to design a life of uncertainty into a life of defining moments.  He is an international trainer, speaker and author.

Sharon Parker has over 20 years of Project Management experience and provides executive leadership and career enhancement in an array of business industries to implement successful projects. This was my second favorite presentation of the day, not so much that I learned a lot but because her presentation was reflective of my past life as an IT Security project lead.

This workshop was worth every penny of the $97 I paid for it.  Actually, at any other time, a workshop of this caliber would have easily cost anywhere from three hundred to nine hundred dollars or more.

If you ever get an opportunity to attend one of Dr. Maloon-Gibson’s workshops here in Brevard, take advantage of it.  You will not be disappointed.
