Rick Gillis presents PROMOTE!

Your work does not speak for itself. You do.”

Employment expert Rick Gillis has spent thousands of hours working with individuals across the nation. One of the commonplace factors that he came to recognize among his clients was how very few of them were capable of expressing their commercial value, that WOW! factor, to decision makers regardless of their professional rank.

“I now recognize that I was at the mercy of my supervisors.”

 PROMOTE! is based on insight Rick gained from coaching as well as personal experience. The concept is simple: Rick will show you how to professionally promote yourself and all that you do for your organization and especially to those to whom you are professionally at the mercy of: Management.

Message: At the core of this life-changing presentation is the lesson that you must be knowledgeable about how and comfortable with expressing your professional wins to supervisors as well as to clients and customers.
