6:00-9:00 PM Workshop



So many women do not know what they want from a career. Often they know they are unhappy at work. They learn what they don’t want, but not what they do want. Unless you define what you DO want, you will likely get more of the same that you DON’T want.

But even if you know what you want, how do you go about pursuing it?

This workshop is designed for women who are “stuck” in their careers and confused about where to go next.

You will learn:

  • How to clarify what you want
  • Proven success principles you need to go after what you want
  • How to build the support network you need to stay on track

This is a highly experiential workshop. In addition, your participation will be customized with help from The Book of You®, a completely personalized book all about you based on the results of a world-renowned personality assessment (The Birkman Method®) you will take ahead of time.

To make sure you stay on track, you will have access to 3 follow-up calls to answer questions and ensure you are building the support system you need to continue toward your goals. Then you will have access to one call a month for a whole year to review and expand upon the principles covered in this starting workshop.


Dr. Sarah E. Brown has over 30 years of corporate work experience, most recently as Managing Director at Accenture. She retired in 2014 and began to help women gain clarity and confidence in their career choices. Now she is teaching women how to coach themselves to have and be all they want. Dr. Brown has a Ph.D. in PsychoEducational Processes and over 20 years of Talent Management experience.

What Others Say About Us ...

Matthew Cinelli

Through the course of my transition, from teacher to training and instructional design, I participated in numerous Philadelphia Area Great Careers success groups. I participated in networking activities and professionally skills workshops. The consistency and support of others in a similar position, the exposure to industry trends, and the opportunity to practice interpersonal communication was a significant factor in my professional growth during this time, especially as an introvert.

Bill Indik

I’ve have attended the career success group Meetups. If you’re unemployed or underemployed, it’s a wonderful way to network with others who are in a similar situation as you, in a supportive environment. Whether you’re shy or outgoing, it helps to be with people who can relate to the challenges and emotional issues of job searching, exchange ideas, mention postings, point out helpful upcoming events, and motivate each other. People frequently point out they have connections in companies where others in the meeting may want to apply.

Susan Denby Director of Communications

I attribute much of my interviewing success to the Philadelphia Area Great Careers Group members. Thank you for all your support, advice, and kindness throughout my transition. You are an amazing group of people! Of course, I have learned we are always in transition and that it is people, like us, who understand how important it is to cultivate relationships and help others. I am blessed to have met everyone in our Meetups.

Linda Cruz Manager, Corporate & Volunteer Engagment

I will be forever grateful to the Philadelphia Area Great Careers Group and how they have helped me focus, stay on target, and grow. This group has been incredibly supportive in getting me to my landing. I am so grateful for the many services provided. Keep up the great work, as you help so many people. Thank you for all you do for those in career transition.

Laurie Marshall Information Developer

My experiences with the Philadelphia Area Great Careers Group meetups have been nothing but positive! From the first meeting, I was struck by how welcoming and supportive everyone was. Attendees and volunteers alike are willing to share leads and contacts as well as tips and advice. The meetings are well organized, efficiently run, and packed with helpful information! The speakers are very engaging and present relevant, current material. The 30 second elevator pitches, as part of the purposeful structured networking, are a practical way for people to polish their message and quickly make new connections.
