SARASOTA, Fla. – May 12 2021 – The Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (CWC-FPRA) is hosting “May Master Class: Balance,” a three-part virtual event providing advice and strategies to successfully balance one’s professional and personal lives. Each session will take place on Zoom from noon – 1:00 pm from May 25 – 27.
The first session, on May 25, will focus on “Professional” balance and feature Carolyn Maue, executive coach, consultant and president of The Maue Center. A successful entrepreneur and communicator, Maue is an expert in dealing with “people” issues in the workplace, consistently yielding positive change and growth for the organizations she serves. Since 2004, The Maue Center has been assisting companies in maximizing human potential in the workplace, through executive coaching of leaders and their teams to build leadership capacity.
The second session, on May 26, will focus on “Team” with Blair Bloomston of Game On Nation. In this interactive virtual training, Bloomston will demonstrate Game On’s Lead With Laughter approach, which teaches how to build authentic connections with teams through positive, appropriate, and uplifting humor. The course also focuses on communication techniques to strengthen trust, camaraderie, and empowerment by encouraging best practices like celebration and collaboration to help teams stay connected and inspired.
The final session on May 27, focuses on “Self.” Jamie Coffey of Be Hummingbird will guide attendees through a series of tangible wellness practices to incorporate into daily life, in order to better manage stress. Through breathing exercises, deskside stretches, simple meditations, and other tools, Coffey will share simple ways to be more productive professionally, more content personally, and how to enjoy each moment with a greater sense of ease.
“Whatever balance may have existed in our lives prior to 2020 has gone out the window for a lot of professionals as the lines between work, school and home life blurred nearly overnight,” says Eleni Kouvatsos, APR, president of CWC-FPRA and senior communications manager for First Watch Restaurants. “This year’s virtual Master Class will create an opportunity to reflect, reset and renew our focus on what’s important.”
Tickets for the program are $30/FPRA members, $45/guests; one ticket is good for all three days of the Master Class and the video recordings. To register, visit cwcfpra.com/events.
