Our guest speaker, Peter Burchard, will present Occupy Now.  The workplace depends on people who are highly skilled, innovative, team players and who produce great outcomes. We see continuous calls for more training, technical skill development and greater focus on applied learning in higher education programs.  In this brief yet thoughtful and moving presentation, Peter Burchard asks; “What about who we are today, how we treat each other today and the exercise of free will today?”

In this one-of-a-kind presentation, participants will see how “Who and how I am” always exceeds the value of “What I know.” Participants will come away with a better understanding of the underlying personal behaviors that create career and workplace success.      

Mr. Burchard has over 30 years of executive experience in local government, healthcare and consulting.  He is a speaker, trainer, coach, writer and faculty member at NIU.

I want to encourage all IGFOA members to attend the Assistant’s Network its always great to get involvement from the entire membership.  The network will target speakers and presenters that offer target themes in the arena of management, leadership, coaching, motivation and other supplemental tools to develop our membership for the future.  Please encourage your Assistant Finance Directors, Finance Managers, Accounting Supervisors, Accountants, Management Analysts, and other staff to attend our events.    

Andrew D. Brown, Deputy Director of Finance
Village of Buffalo Grove

Note: Weber Grill is located off of Butterfield Rd, east of Highland Ave. and west of Myers Rd.
