Meeting the daunting task of giving a speech to a leadership group whose purpose is the study and perfection of the art of public speaking, M Powered Strategies President and CEO Kendall Lott spoke to the District 27 Executive Council of Toastmasters International on April 11th at Bloomberg BNA in Crystal City. The topic of the presentation was “Managing Change” and the Toastmasters, whose tagline is “Where Leaders Are Made,” were treated to a half-hour presentation on how effective leaders successfully manage, and even embrace, change within the complexities of modern organizations. The presentation combined both leading industry best practices and elements of MPS’s own methodologies and frameworks relating to chance management and organizational design.

MPS would like to thank Toastmasters and District 27 Governor Dianne LaVanway for the invitation to speak to the group and share our vision of change management and organizational design. For more information or to view presentation materials, please contact Erin Bankey.

In these times of sequestration and random budget cuts, M Powered Strategies is looking for ways to “re-source” human capital for the Federal Government. Erin Bankey, Program Manager of MPS’ Professional Apprenticeship for Consulting Excellence (PACE) Program, recently became a Certified Veteran Recruiter (CVR). “I am thrilled to be able to effectively recruit Veterans to our organization,” says Erin. “They bring excellent qualities to the table — leadership, situational awareness, and teamwork — that make for successful consultants.”

The PACE Program is an ideal environment for Veterans looking to enhance their marketable skills and strengthen their civilian resumes. With full-time client engagement, classroom training, and independent business case studies, the program provides a prime opportunity to learn essential consulting skills while earning income immediately. With the ongoing success of the Applied Management Professionals (AMP) Program, and now the PACE Program, M Powered Strategies is focusing more and more on Professional Development, and offering these services to our clients.
