Event Description

They said if you do what you love, you would build a successful career and the money would come. They told you that if you worked hard enough, you would be generously rewarded. They said that if you quit your corporate career and started your own business, life would fall into place.

Yet, a global poll conducted by Gallup uncovered that out of the world's one billion full-time workers, only 15% of people are engaged at work. That means that an astronomical 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs. 


Despite doing all the “right” things, professionals still remain unfulfilled, disengaged, and even miserable in their careers.

How did we get here?  And how can we improve this statistic?

Join us for an interactive presentation with Marla Holdread, Executive Coach, Career Strategist, and Founder of Shift Leadership. Marla will share her unconventional career journey and discuss 5 key strategies (that she learned the hard way) to ensure that your career is nothing but a success

About Marla Holdread

At the age of 37, Marla Holdread suddenly found herself divorced, jobless, and managing life as a single mother with two young kids. She knew she had lost her way. It was time for a reinvention.

Today, after 10 years of trial and error, missteps and failures, and "learn as you go" lessons, she is now an Executive Coach, Career Strategist, and Founder of Shift Leadership. Her passion is to help other stuck and unfulfilled professionals make positive shifts in their own careers.

Marla created her unique methodology and coaching program, The Career Revisionist, as a framework for clients to go from waking up exhausted, frustrated, and dreading work, to feeling confident, energized, and leaping out of bed each day.

She whole-heartedly believes that each of us deserves to feel alive and aligned with our work, and she is on a mission to reinvent career experiences for professionals around the globe.
