About Deirdre Gilmore:
For over 21 years Deirdre has focused on business/marketing planning, strategic project pursuits, and supporting professional consulting firms, aka architects/engineers/contractors (A/E/C) by implementing the tactics needed for success. When she started in A/E/C it became quickly clear that while technical staff (that’s you) are excellent at your respective crafts, none of you had been taught the skills it takes to be successful in you careers beyond the technical expertise. And thus, a training career was added to teach the soft skills required to success in the consulting business. In addition to training hundreds of A/E/C professionals each year, Deirdre is the President & Lead Strategist at TankGirl Marketing. Whether it is creating and implementing a strategic vision, or digging deep to win a specific project, she ensures firms are ready for battle with the right strategy to execute the plan.
The webinar is followed by a series of short pitches in which the geo-engineering companies attending the event will introduce their company and share their working experience as geo-engineers.
Afterwards there is opportunity for students with an interest in geo-related engineering disciplines to learn how diverse the geo-engineering field is and what types of positions are available as a professional. Students have the opportunity to meet with professionals for reconnaissance interviews for the students and lightening talks by professionals. This is also a night for professionals to meet students and learn what they are studying and what they hope to do once they graduate. Don’t miss out on this terrific networking opportunity!
The event will be held online. The link will follow shortly upon registration. For companies wanting to sponsor a virtual booth at the event, the cost is $200 per booth (or $150 for government agencies) which will include admission for two representatives. Companies represented with a table will also have sponsorship recognition in a slideshow and have there logos included on the announcement.
