Presentation by career coach Lisbeth Hurni – September 17th, 2014

Our 2014 event—a  talk by career coach Lisbeth Hurni on September 17th—was attended by 25 people. Here’s what one of the attendees had to say: “The info seminar on mid-career/mid-life changes was really interesting. It made me realize that it’s the difference, in a nutshell, of one’s perception—seeing the glass half-empty or half-full. See it half-full, appreciate what one has going for oneself, deal with what is not possible, and get on with it.”
