Informal IT Networking Every Wednesday, Locations Vary

Join us for vBeersPlus at General Provision Downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

vBeers events happen four times a month on the first four Wednesdays. Check the meetup.com page for the locations.

vBeersPlus events adds sponsorships - recruitment, community, commercial

These informal networking/social events provide a relaxed environment to meet with other hands-on IT professionals and promote the growth of IT in South Florida.

I would like to invite local firms who are seeking new IT employees to sponsor a table which they will staff before or as part of the vBeersPlus.

These tables will be set up before the vBeersPlus. Job fair attendees and the hiring firms' representatives are encouraged to stay for the networking and talks.

In advance of the vBeersPlus, I will post a list of the positions that are available from the table sponsors.

I am now looking for sponsors to deliver short commercial talks during vBeersPlus. The idea is to describe an IT problem such that people will relate to it then briefly describe the sponsor's solution. Attendees will be able to visit the sponsor's table, after the presentations, to discuss the presented solution.

As I ramp up the sponsorships, the food and drinks will be covered by the sponsors.

If you are interested in sponsoring a table at the Job Fair and/or presenting a commercial solution, please email sales@itnewsandevents.com or call/text Lauren McLaughlin for details at (954) 729 9130.

Discover Your Strengths - Morning Workshop on Friday, July 19th With Kelly Merbler
Friday, July 19th, 2019: 8:30 PM to 12:00 PM
Lynn University - Boca Raton

Join Kelly Merbler and her team member Marlena Coco, both Certified Gallup Strengths Coaches and Trainers for a powerful and engaging workshop.

This workshop is based on the #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller StrengthsFinder 2.0.

Did you know that only 30% of the American workforce goes to work each day feeling engaged in their jobs? According to Gallup research, that is the statistic that our workforce reported. Of the 70% of people who go to work each day feeling disengaged in what they are doing, most are not using the talents that they possess to do the job they for which they are being paid. This is costing companies millions of dollars and countless hours of time. It takes so long to hire great people but how do you retain them and keep them engaged in their jobs?

Donald Clifton the Founder of StrengthsFinders stated, "What will happen when we think about what is RIGHT with people rather than fixating on what is wrong with them?"

Join my workshop, 'Unleash Your Power & Discover Your Strengths' and you will gain access into how to develop and implement such a plan. This highly interactive session has been designed to deliver high performance results by identifying the natural talents and strengths of each employee which fosters a culture of engagement and retention. This program offers a personalized assessment to discover strengths and develops an action plan for application of those strengths.

"Good recruiters can help with talent acquisition. I help with talent activation so you can retain them." - Kelly Merbler
