This discussion will be moderated by Christine Aspell, Managing Partner, Baltimore Office, KPMG LLP, and Sabina Kelly, Greater Maryland Market President, Bank of America. How to be an Effective Ally Why inclusion is about each person. How to create a culture that strives for equity and embraces, respects and values the differences of all employees. Why diversity is about the unique experiences, qualities and characteristics each person brings to the work environment. Why inclusion requires that each person see beyond differences in others to create a culture that unlocks the power of diversity. According to research, creating an environment where people can bring their whole self to work is essential to a successful organizational culture. An individual’s sense of belonging within the work culture is enhanced by the presence of “allies” – those who support and advocate for others across all aspects of diversity. Panelists for this event have demonstrated that they value diverse perspectives, are not afraid to engage in courageous conversations and have worked to remove bias, stereotypes and patterns of inequity in the workplace.  Hear from these top executives: Joseph Sullivan – Chairman and CEO, Legg Mason Robert Wallace – President, CEO and Founder, Bithgroup Technologies Timothy Gillis – Managing Partner, KPMG David Imre – CEO, imre Event Details: When: Thursday, October 24, 2019, 5:30-6:30 p.m. networking, 6:30-8:30 p.m. program Where: Towson University South Campus Pavilion, 7537 Auburn Drive, Towson, Md., 21204 Cost: Members: Free For event information, contact Lisa Byrd,  GBC’s Director of Events and Business Development, at 410-727-2820.

Friends, family, colleagues, employees, clients and strategic partners all make up a network where you play a dynamic role. Often, you’re not even aware of the impact of your own influence. To master influence, you must start with yourself and your emotional state, especially during these challenging times. During this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the ways that our thoughts may limit our performance, and work through seven questions designed to make us more productive and influential in all phases of our lives. We will also examine the core tenants of long-term bonding and rapport, effective (virtual) communication, and buying strategies in order to set clients (internal and external) at ease and make you more relatable. Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore. McDonell, who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, has worked throughout the U.S. for leading financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates.

We are all aware that time is a finite, non-renewable resource which must be carefully managed. Yet, having the personal conviction to take ownership of our own time can be extremely difficult. Often, people devalue their own time while prioritizing everyone else’s.  Many individuals in the workplace develop “head trash” around time management — throwing their hands up in the air, claiming there is no use in being proactive. This workshop is designed to energize attendees to focus more intently on their individual time management behaviors in order to get more out of each day. We will ask all attendees to come prepared to take a closer look at how they have spent their time in recent weeks and learn from those experiences. Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore. McDonell, who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, has worked throughout the U.S. for leading financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates.
