Top Tips for Career Success

As part of Edelman’s GWEN (Global Women’s Executive Network) initiative, I recently hosted an informal coffee chat with about 50 employees from the Edelman Toronto office from all different levels and practices. The purpose of the chat was to provide some insight into my professional experience and share some advice for career development.

I come from an entrepreneurial business background, and I was really lucky to have some great mentors in my life. Even though there were bumps along the way (as there are for most of us!), these mentors truly shaped how I approach my role today as National Practice Lead, Consumer Marketing. I’m grateful to now be a mentor myself, and to share my “career life lessons” with others.

The Benefits of Breaking the Busy Trap

It was quite coincidental that the day I was about to embark on my three-week sabbatical to Italy, in recognition of my 10-year anniversary with Edelman, that this article on the “busy trap” spurred a lot of discussion within my social network.  There’s no question that many individuals – and the organizations for which they work – fall into the trap of measuring their self-worth and contribution to the employer by their level of “busyness.”  That said, as Tim Kreider says in his article, “the space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes for inspiration – it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done.”

So, You Think We Should Start a Book Club?

In 2009 some Toronto Edel-folk started talking and discovered that – in addition to being passionate communicators –  we all had something in common: we were all self-proclaimed ‘avid readers’, with similar tastes in books. So the obvious question was: why not create a book club? Shouldn’t every office have one? It only took a split second to decide yes, and the Edelman Toronto Book Club was born! I took the book club to heart and made it my mission to keep the office reading.

A BIG Little Give

We’ve wrapped up The Little Give for 2012, and I must say, it was an absolutely incredible year.

This was my first time experiencing The Little Give, and I got to see it in action first-hand in Vancouver, and again at the kick-off in Toronto.   Each of the offices put their own unique spin on the 48 hours of giving, and boy, did they give.

Un thé-causerie “à l’anglaise” pour inviter les femmes à devenir des leaders!

Mardi le 22 mai 2012, les employées d’Edelman Montréal recevaient deux invitées bien spéciales : mesdames Monique Jérôme-Forget et Lisa Frulla.

Cette causerie a été élaborée dans le cadre de GWEN (Global Women’s Executive Network), un groupe formé au sein d’Edelman et dont l’objectif est d’encourager le réseautage, le recrutement, la collaboration et la planification de carrière pour les femmes afin d’accroître leur présence aux plus hauts niveaux de l’entreprise. Edelman tient beaucoup à créer un environnement propice à l’évolution professionnelle des femmes, comme en témoigne d’ailleurs la 17e place obtenue par l’entreprise au palmarès des « meilleurs milieux de travail pour les femmes » publié dans les pages du Globe and Mail le 19 avril 2012.
