Milestones in Leadership and Branding Personality

January 4, 2011 No Comments »

Branding Personality is thrilled to announce it’s newest client, the Milestones in Leadership Summit. We will be handling the promotion of this unique occasion.  Read on for more about three very special speakers and the purpose of this event.


Newport Beach, CA, March 10th, 2011 — This isn’t your average leadership seminar – we are looking for significant change.

There are seminars, and then there’s Milestones in Leadership Summit, a transformational day led by internationally renowned change-agents, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of Mojo and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There; Dr. John Izzo, bestselling author of Awakening the Corporate Soul and The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die; and Columbia Professor Srikumar Rao, Ph.D., bestselling author of Happiness at Work and Are You Ready to Succeed?.

“Leadership is a state of being. Who you are is infinitely more important than the techniques you deploy.” – Dr. Srikumar Rao

On Thursday, March 10th, 2011, the Milestones in Leadership Summit breaks away from the traditional doldrums of seminars that cover momentary motivations, business techniques or processes that don’t develop effective behaviors for lasting change in C-level executives and their teams. Change is too constant and quick to focus only on the superficial issues – we must dig deeper.

New realities require new thinking. Embrace the dynamics of change by bringing new meaning to the work-life balance on an inherent level in an experiential day filled with vulnerable conversations in topics executives don’t talk about.

Topics to be covered include:

·      What got you here, won’t get you there
·      Change your behavior. Control your future
·      Develop yourself to develop others
·      Operating in the zone of intentionality
·      Utilizing your inherent gifts as a form of social responsibility
·      The work / life balancing act
·      The new definition of a successful life
·      Developing a deeper sense of meaning in the day-to-day
·      Uncovering the vision by discovering the passion

Two hundred C-level executives and their teams will be interacting in a unique full-day intensive at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort to achieve new levels of mastery. The Milestones in Leadership Summit is an improved resurrection of the previous Milestone Leadership Conferences that would draw more than 400 attendees.

“Whenever I attend one of these events, I am looking for the little nugget that pays for the event in both money and time. Milestone delivered that nugget, which gave me a significant ROI, on the time I spent attending.” – Steve Pixley, CEO, AutoCrib

Referral networking groups and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to request information on the Milestones in Leadership Referral Partner Program and Sponsor Partner Program for referral and sponsorship income opportunities.

Press passes are available by contacting Courtney Thurman: Courtney at SmallWerks.com.

For additional information or a sample copy of the Referral Partner Program and Sponsor Partner Program details, contact Ron Hoefer of Milestone Insurance at Ron at MilestonesinLeadership.com or by phone at 877-506-5599.

The Milestones in Leadership Summit is an annual journey into transformation featuring breakaway exercises are designed to engage executives in a collaborative environment not found in most conferences. It is truly an event that will transcend every expectation of a day well spent.

The conference was founded by Ron Hoefer of Milestone Insurance, a leading California risk management and insurance services corporation that was built on the Milestone experience, where personal involvement is the key component in every interaction. As trusted advisors, we increase organizational effectiveness through mentorship, education and leadership training.

Cars 4 A Cause: Networking & Charity Event Pasadena

November 3, 2010 No Comments »

When: Thursday, November 18  from 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Where: Symes Pasadena
RSVP: http://www.cars4acause2010.com/

Union Station was opened in 1973 by a group of community volunteers as a simple hospitality center to serve poor and homeless people in downtown Pasadena. Today, Union Station is San Gabriel Valley’s largest and most comprehensive social service agency assisting homeless and very low-income families. Their mission is to help men, women and children rebuild their lives and end homelessness.

>Recently, Branding Personality, Kruse Control, Inc. & Symes Pasadena joined forces to develop a non profit charity event supporting the Union Station Homeless Shelter. The event is aptly named it “Cars4aCause”

To promote this affair, Branding Personality created an in-depth social media networking plan to make sure this charity event rises to its full potential. To start, a website was established as a resource to gain more information. In addition, a Facebook event page was created to invite guests and keep them informed. Lastly, a dedicated twitter account helped to spread the buzz  and keep the information and excitement flowing.

Kruse Control, Inc. is one of the few women-owned consultancies for auto retail and has received numerous awards for achievement. Kruse Control was on obvious choice to help support this occasion.

Cars4ACause is not a sales event. It’s purpose is to socially interact with people and build relationships. It’s about communication, starting the conversation, on how each of us can give back in our own way and have fun doing so.

Please join us Thursday, November 18  from 6:00pm – 9:00pm at Symes Pasadena located at 3600 East Colorado Blvd in Pasadena.

* Why Twitter, why Facebook? And what goals can we achieve with these social media?
* Know your audience and how they use social media (how to listen)
* How is social media used differently in the United States compared to Europe? (selection of social media)

* Opening a social media account is not the same as building a community (spider strategy)
