I joined Office Angels seven years ago after a 17-year career in sales with a Fortune 500 multinational food and beverage company. My husband had been transferred to Atlanta, and having just had my second child, I didn’t want to work full time anymore. With my degree in marketing and business administration and my sales experience, I knew how to develop business leads and prepare presentations, so it was an easy stretch to focus on speaker services. I love working with our clients and the fact that each project is unique. I love being able to work remotely and being home when my kids get out of school. Even though my client base has grown incrementally I am still in charge of my schedule. I love the flexibility—it’s the best of both worlds.

Turknett Leadership Character Award Nomination

I Am Honored

I am so pleased to share that I was recently nominated for a Turknett Leadership Character Awards in the CEO/President/Managing Partner–Small/Medium Company Category. These annual awards, sponsored by the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership and Atlanta-based Turknett Leadership Group, recognize individuals who demonstrate character in leadership based on alignment with the Leadership Character Model developed by Bob and Lyn Turknett in 1995. The model represents character as a scale with integrity as the base and respect and responsibility balanced on either side.

This recognition means the world to me as it acknowledges the values and work ethic that I consider to be of utmost importance in life and that I practice in both my business and personal interactions. I invite you to read more about the Turknett Award at https://greenleaf.org/11th-annual-leadership-character-awards/ and seek out other nominees who meet these standards.
