A Brand New Me in 2012

Contemplating the Future - Who Am I Going to Be?

Over the Christmas holidays I met one of Bahrain’s treasures – Dr. Clare Beckett-McInroy.

Clare is the President of the BizLadies’ Bahrain branch.  BizLadies is an international networking organization.  I knew her predecessor Dr. Petra, a German who was passionate about the women’s professional development.  An educator by training, Dr. Clare’s ideas and visions for positive transformation impressed me.

As I believe 2012 is a year of transformation, I signed up to attend her Tuesday, January 17th course named a Brand (New) YouIt is designed to help kick-start anyone to where they want to be.

Right now that is my question – exactly what do I envision the future to look like?

Brand (New) You embraces the principals of coaching and NLP as well as tried and tested personal branding research. It will be facilitated in a down-to-earth way so that all participants can leave motivated and ready for change. Dr. Clare described the course.

This day will involve lots of self-discovery and learning – what’s your bucket list? Who do you want to be?

We will look at what inhibits your progress and fulfillment.  Understanding first impressions – what part of you do people see?  What’s stopping you?

Then we investigate what our BIG goals/dreams really are – what they look like/feel like and how they will embrace the new YOU.  Personal branding theory and Metaphors will be covered.

Finally, we figure out how to take action and be accountable.  And to ensure we get what we want, we define what we have to say NO to and what we need to say YES to.

The impact of the course will be sustained through a ‘buddy’ system and possibly monthly meetings so that people can share their successes and provide tips to other participants.

The course is 8:30-3:30 at the Riffa Views Golf Club, Tuesday, January 17, 2012.  BD 125.  If you are interested in joining us, please email office@beckett-mcinroy.com or call 1759 0135.

Maybe I will see you there.
