BBC Rudy Giuliani Mayor of America (Excerpt)


In revisiting my participation in this BBC Documentary, I was taken by the power of filmmaker Celia Lowenstein's vision and the narration of Sir Harold Evans' as well as the impact of Rudy Giuliani's extraordinary leadership and personal immersion in the events of 9.11.

As the years go by, not only since 9.11 but also since Giuliani's active role as a government official, I think back to his achievements in governing a city that many looked upon as ungovernable. And even with very divided opinion, including my own reservations on his tactics, at times, I believe we benefited greatly in his commitment to a safe city and an era of unparalleled civility in NYC.  


 I'm also reminded throughout the documentary that all of the other speakers are strong men.

Career transition counseling workshop

At last night’s EOLIS Career Transition Counseling workshop for the Union League Group,  I tested out a format that allowed a 2 hour window devoted exclusively to a Q & A produced by the participants, spontaneously.

Some of the questions were:
1)      What are the materials needed? Professional bio, resume, work matter summary—and more
2)      How helpful are job boards? Variable , but often they pose more risks than rewards
3)      How do you avoid feeling the ups and downs during the interviewing process—treat connections and interviews as a numbers game and keep up the numbers!
4)       How do you parlay jack of all trades and master of none into a favored specialty- link your intellect and work ethic with prior developed skills and abilities to the position you seek.   
   
The top rated question was: “How does one find the “hidden jobs”- - the ones that are not accessed on employer websites, job boards” and search firm, “laundry lists”. 

Answer: “In a nutshell, through networking techniques not taught in social media 101”

These questions among others are covered in EOLIS jump start career transition consultations. eolis@eolis.com

Optimizing one’s job search depends upon networking effectively; developing those skills long before it’s time to make the move is the single biggest step you can take to lower stress on any unanticipated doomsday.

And, investing in your future with a savvy support group, and /or a highly qualified professional career transition counsellor (different from an outplacement specialist) can be the quickest path to creating new channels of contacts, links, and relevant introductions.

Two Eolis Sisters Celebrate Manhattan

It is a tradition!  Sharon and Wendeen celebrate the holiday season, sharing their love for Manhattan; restaurants, theater, museums, and, the must see Alvin Ailey dance company. The joy of Ailey's longtime signature  piece, Revelations, never runs out of joy.

Last weekend Ailey paired Revelations with  the beautiful new Odetta, a tribute to the legendary folk singer, at the Saturday matinee--a Sharon bestowed on Wendeen.  And Wendeen returned the favor,  tipping off  Sharon an avid civil rights activist  to the impassioned, riveting choreography that explodes before your eyes in the dance company's timely offering of "Uprising."

The two sisters continue their  family time celebration over the Hanukkah and Christmas  holidays, taking in great food for though.

Welcome to Wendeen's World

For the past 12 years, I have written hundreds of articles for business, legal and gaming industry publications; most notably  I followed legal and business developments in the gaming industry.

Believing that life is best lived as a perpetual Renaissance, I embark  here on an expanded commitment to writing as an independent thinker in diverse nooks and crannies of life.

I cherish my life experience gained to date, but believe the best is yet to come! With unprecedented  freedom to be in the moment, to look backward and forward at all that I discover and explore without abandoning obligations of respect and discretion, as deserved.

Just in case that guy upstairs wants a report, I want to be ready!
