Season’s Greetings

The Holiday Season is a time for celebration and happiness. Traditionally, one of the customs used to mark the end of the year is to make a New Year's resolution. This tradition also dates back to the early Babylonians, whose most popular resolution was to return borrowed farm equipment. 

Today, a New Year’s resolution is usually a commitment one makes to achieve a specific goal during the coming year. While many of us have big dreams and believe, like Nelson Mandela, that “it always seems impossible until it is done,” many need some encouragement and a reminder that anything is, indeed, possible.
Wishing you the very best for a
Joyous, Successful & Prosperous 2014

The Power Breakfast will start on January 23rd

Many of you know that I have hosted a Power Lunch series on a monthly basis since 2003. This program has attracted a diverse group of participants representing a range of professions, and I have had the good fortune to learn, share ideas and exchange experiences, while exploring various management and business-related issues with smart and insightful people.

After a short creative break last fall, I am happy to announce the launch of a new Power Breakfast series which will focus on Self-Awareness and Self-Development. 
  • Location: Le Palace Hotel, Panska 12, Prague 
  • Time: 08:00-10:00 
  • Price: 600 CZK +21% DPH 
Stay tuned for more details, coming soon. 

Training 4 Success Workshops will resume on January 28th

For 5 years, the Training4Success workshops offered participants an opportunity to hone communication, public speaking and presentation skills – and improve self-confidence – in a friendly atmosphere and professional environment. 

In January, Training4Success will resume with a new program focusing on Communication and Success.
  • Location: Le Palace Hotel, Panska 12, Prague 
  • Time: 18:00-21:00 
  • Price: 1000 CZK +21% DPH 
More details on this program are also to come.

Anything Is Possible

Anything Is possible 
If there was ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,

Not for any grand cause, necessarily,
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that's your inspiration,
something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
Know, though, that things worth doing
seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up,
and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself,
that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great,
