A New Spin On Networking

23 June 2015

Marie Smith, one of the founders of ACD, hosted our June 2015 session, during which we reworked our approach to networking. Love it or loathe it, networking is here to stay and we spent the evening re-energising and focusing on what we would like to gain and what we can offer others. During this practical and tips fueled session we used our collective experience, contacts and expertise to help each other to reach our goals, in life, work and the wider world.

From the event:

My whole career has been focused on supporting people to be the best they can be benefiting not only themselves, but also the organisations they work for, or with, and their families and friends

During my thirty years in learning and development, leadership and coaching I have worked in and with private, public, higher education and not-for-profit sectors.  I feel very grateful and lucky to work with some amazing and inspirational people and organisations. I established my own leadership development and executive coaching business, SUCCESSMITH, in 2012. I continue to enjoy working with a variety of organisations and individuals to support and co-create transformational change.

My passion is supporting people to understand what success means to them and go for what they really want out of life. I specialise in coaching and facilitating the development of leaders in organisations, departments, and teams. I also work on a one-to-one basis with private individuals.

I particularly enjoy supporting all genders, and particularly women, to define and achieve their ‘life purpose’ by overcoming tangible or imagined obstacles.

I feel very privileged that through SUCCESSMITH and through my work with the Aspiring Women Groups, I am able to support others by ‘being the spark that lights the flame for transformational change’, and this is what makes me smile and gives me a reason to get out of bed in the mornings!
