    Presenter: Nancy Steinkamp

    What do Albert Einstein, Leonardo DaVinci, Pablo Picasso, Thomas Edison, George Lucas, and Madame Curie all have in common? They were brilliant people who kept a journal. If you expand the Google search to “successful entrepreneurs who keep a journal” the list grows even longer, along with a description of the numerous benefits of engaging in this practice. For consultants who often work alone, having a place to process ideas and examine patterns of success/failure is like having a reliable co-worker available to provide feedback 24-7.

    This interactive workshop will explore a variety of writing techniques to capture the ebb and flow of your business and how to create space in your work day for written reflection.

    Key Learning #1:        How to set up a work journal to address business needs
    Key Learning #2:        Identify subject areas to monitor
    Key Learning #3:        Experience writing techniques that adapt to your schedule and reveal your priorities.

She is the Founder of Wisdom Writing:   www.wisdomwriting.org and works with individuals and groups to use expressive writing to reveal their unique process for achieving personal and professional goals.
