Mentorship Program | The Human Connection: Bringing Your Communication to Life

Tuesday, June 05, 2018

Want more confidence when you speak in public? Want to command the room as you share your vision with your colleagues? Want to promote your firm through speaking engagements? Strengthen your presentation skills in this fun, interactive workshop.

Through teaching, discussion, theater exercises and coaching, you’ll learn to engage and energize your listeners. Learn to identify and drop nervous habits, practice your sole task as a presenter, explore the power of body language, use visuals wisely, and breathe life into your presentations!

You’ll learn much more than just public speaking skills. These principles apply to all types of interpersonal communication — from one-on-one and team meetings to networking/social events and phone calls.

Presenter: Joe Masi, Graceworks

Joe Masi, Freedom Finder with Graceworks, has been leading individuals and groups towards greater freedom and healthier living for more than 20 years. As a coach, counselor and actor, Joe is a behavior change expert, guiding clients to use their mind, body and voice in new and more expressive ways.

He holds graduate degrees in both counseling and drama, which have equipped him to effectively guide clients in fun and engaging ways through their process of personal transformation. Referred to often as the “Gentle Giant,” Joe’s coaching is infused with a ton of heart and just the right amount of muscle.

What our sponsors are saying...

“SMPS has been a tremendous resource to our company [CBLH]. It has reshaped the way we conduct marketing. All of their programs, seminars, articles and conferences have given us the ability to educate our marketing staff on the changing tactics and strategies facing our industry. Lastly, we have built relationships through all the networking opportunities SMPS offers. It only made sense to support our chapter through sponsorship as they have supported us”.

John Rach, AIA, Director of Marketing
CBLH Design, Inc.

“We are proud once again to support the local SMPS Northeast Ohio Chapter as renewing Annual Sponsor, and have been actively engaged with the SMPS NEO Chapter for over 5 years now. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the SMPS NEO family, as it has brought us closer together with the local A/E/C community and has created new partnerships with fellow SMPS'ers.”

"My membership with SMPS was gifted to me while working at Karpinski Engineering and while I was hesitant to get involved in the operations of the board, I can’t imagine life without SMPS and my fellow committee members. Volunteering has afforded me not only great professional relationships, but great friendships as well. I truly believe our board members are the best around and some of the hardest working individuals I know. In short, I joined SMPS for the educational resources and have stayed for the relationships and interaction with fellow contemporaries and the fun."

ARCADIS, U.S., Inc.

"As someone who was new to the industry, I was inspired by the NEO board members and all the hard work and dedication they put in to provide this region with an organization that is educational, entertaining and that puts you face to face with some of the most significant people throughout the A/E/C industry. As Membership & Social Media Chair, if I can give back to others half of what SMPSNEO has given to me; my job will have been a success."

Dave Eyssen
Precision Environmental Co.

"I discovered SMPS while looking at a Properties Magazine (no plug intended) and had a discussion with the owner of my firm, Scott Maloney. He encouraged me to get involved but stressed to really be engaged and take a role in the organization to really get something out of your membership. He was right! It was easy to engage with such a great group of people but really getting involved, being a part of the organization and not just an attendee has really opened up doors and introductions that would not have been possible. Coming from outside of the A/E/C industry prior to working at K2M, SMPS really helped me to understand and grasp this dynamic industry."

“The Mentor/Protégé program provided me a third-party resource to help me clarify and realize some of my career goals. By working with a mentor, I was able to identify those areas where I could improve my marketing skills, but also helped me see where my strengths were of benefit to my organization. I highly recommend this one-on-one program!”
