    APSMA Queensland is excited to announce the launch of the 2017 Next Step Program.

    Next Step events are designed to support the development of up-and-coming marketing, communications and business development professionals.

    The program is a series of four separate events run over the course of a year (each interactive event runs for approximately 1 hour, followed by networking within a Brisbane CBD venue).

    These events have been specifically created to help expand skill sets, build professional networks and provide inspiration for career success.

    Although individual registration and attendance is available, we encourage attendees to take advantage of the Next Step Program package which provides the opportunity to register for all four events in the series at a discounted cost. More details on registration for this series are located at the end of this email.


    The 2017 Next Step Calendar includes the following event topics:

    March - Next Step 1: Speed Mentoring

    August - Next Step 2: Creating a career development action plan

    Venue: EY, Level 51, 111 Eagle Street

    Topic overview: Know that you need to be in control of your own career and goals but don’t know where to start? This event will provide you with the tools to manage your own career and ensure you’re making the best decision to move forward in your career journey.

    September - Next Step 3: PechaKucha breakfast – career stories

    Venue: Brisbane CBD venue TBC

    Topic overview: Never heard of the PechaKucha concept? This fast paced, high energy event format sees each speaker present 20 slides on their career journey – the twist? They have just 20 seconds per slide. Come and be entertained and energised by hearing about the various career paths, high and lows and life lessons of our speakers.

    Life is about the journey not the destination.


    November – Next Step 4: Why are my ideas not being heard?

    Venue: Brisbane CBD venue TBC

    Topic overview: More and more our business leaders are having constraints put on their time and are constantly being hit by messages and communications. Budgets and resources are constrained. How can you ensure your idea gets heard and considered. This practical session explores how successful people put their ideas forward and give themselves the best chance of their ideas being accepted.

    Further details on each of the above events, including date, venue, presenters and individual event registration will be circulated leading up to each event.

    ICON NSW Mentoring Program Launch

    In partnership with program sponsor, Marsden Group, the ICON NSW Committee is excited to launch the 2017 Mentoring Program.

    For those of you not already familiar with it, this ICON initiative is designed to increase influence, build collaboration, and extend the opportunity to network among B2B professionals. 

    The aim of this program is to enhance a mentee’s abilities in their current role through connecting them with the experience of a mentor within our community.  Through providing guidance and strategies that will allow mentee’s to improve their performance and confidence, this program will create an influential contribution to the mentee’s career.  Mentors will also benefit from developing their leadership skills and shaping the careers of future B2B professionals.

    As with last year’s program, this year we will run two programs – one for junior-mid level B2B professionals (Assistant through to Advisor/Executive) and one for our senior cohort of B2B professionals (Manager and above).

    Our junior-mid level program will run in a similar fashion to previous years with one scheduled meeting each month for a total of six meetings, or more if mutually agreed between the mentor and mentee.  The suggested length of each meeting is one hour and can be arranged at a time, date and location suitable for both parties – we suggest catching up at a café over coffee.  Additional communication may include phone or email interaction, again depending on what is agreed upon between you.

    The senior program will run in the same way as the junior-mid level program, however, it is designed to act as an "ideas network" for senior B2B professionals – sharing ideas across non-competing industries in a confidential environment.  We suggest that the mentor and mentee meet on six occasions, however, this will again be at the discretion of the mentor and mentee. (Mentors from the junior program are, of course, also welcome to apply to be a mentee in the senior program.)

    REGISTER YOUR INTEREST

    Please review and complete the applicable mentor/mentee form as part of either the junior or senior application pack (found by clicking the relevant links below) and submit to your ICON NSW Committee Mentoring Program contacts by Wednesday, 28 June 2017.

    Next Step Session 2: The value of a "Like" in professional services marketing

    Social media can be a powerful tool in professional services marketing. Done well, a considered strategy can drive significant engagement, leads and business. We look at how firms are using social media as part of their digital strategy.

    Next Step Session 3: Managing the Client Relationship

    How can you impact a client relationship? In large firms, you may feel that client relationships are far removed from your day-to-day role. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s vitally important that we are client-centric at all levels. In this session, you will learn about what you can do to improve and impact the client relationship within your firm.

    Next Step Session 4: The secrets of career success

During this workshop, we will look at the “PIE of Success” and delve into each of the three elements – performance, image and exposure.

    Presence and Impact Training helps professionals to become more natural in their public speaking. Rather than one-size-fits-all training - where you might try to force yourself into the mould of the perfect presenter - this method sets you up to have flexibility in your public speaking. So you can make the right impact whatever the changing circumstances. Victoria's individual, inside-out approach creates confidence and a purposeful mindset to allow you to be at ease with any audience and drive home the message that you intend.

    This intro session sets you on your way to compassionate and compelling presentations. In just a short time you'll encounter theory, practice and feedback that can dramatically shift your attitude toward public speaking and as a result you'll be able to apply your new approach right away in meetings, events or pitches. Join expert coach, Victoria Mintey, for a chance to debunk the myths and demystify the truth about good public speaking.

    About the speaker:

    Victoria Mintey

    M.A. Performance & Musical Theatre, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, London, UK

Leveraging a multifaceted education and international experience, her communication skills coaching brings a fresh energy and performer's insight to corporate professional development.

    She is passionate about helping people breathe life into their communication and presentations - much like an actor brings a script off the page - to move an audience. This is achieved by connecting at an emotional level with the message and, crucially, with the audience.

    As a trainer and facilitator, Victoria has coached partners from the top management consultancies in the world and brought her training methodology into organisations such as: EY, Twitter, JP Morgan, INSEAD, UBS, Barclays, The Fry Group, SEA Consortium, Clyde & Co., CCi, Rockett Design, salt Singapore, Flamingo, Takeda, JLL.
