SCP June 2024 Town Hall Meeting

June 24, 2024 6:00-7:00 EST We invite you to attend a monthly one hour Town Hall via zoom hosted by Marc Sokol, our 2024 SCP President. This is an opportunity to come together as a professional community, to share your experience and discover that of other SCP members. Each month we will start with a topic of interest featuring some aspect of our society. We will then open it up to wider discussion of any topics those online wish to bring up. 2024 Town Halls meetings will feature an array of topics including: How did mentors shape the progress of your career? How can peer coaching raise your game as a consultant? Best consulting practices from a member of our Financial Psychology Special Interest Group Consulting to the United Nations and how you can contribute How consulting to a family business is different (we have a Special Interest Group for that!) Do you want to publish a professional book? Tips from our Consulting Series editor. Our June Town Hall Focus Consulting to small, family and other closely held businesses Many of us discover the world of consulting psychology working with large firms, offering services as part of their talent management suite of services, or holding some internal role. While there are similarities when consulting to small businesses, family firms and other closely held businesses, there are also significant differences to which savvy consultants pay attention. Our guests this month, Mark Sirkin and Sunni Lampasso, each have experience working in both large firms as well as nontraditional settings and can help us explore differences that can matter to consulting success. They have recently launched an SCP SIG (special interest group) on consulting to small and family businesses. Come join us for this town hall focused on how you have been and can be successful working with small, family and other closely held businesses. Mark Sirkin is a past-President of the Society of Consulting Psychology, and serves on the SCP Board of Directors. He is also a member of APA Council and CODAPAR as well as the New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA). Mark specializes in working with closely held businesses, especially family businesses and partnerships. Some of his recent publications include “Regain Your Balance: At Work, with Family, in Life” (iUniverse) and a forthcoming book chapter on working with multi-generational family businesses. As a Coaching Psychologist and Executive Coach with over two decades of experience, Dr. Sunni Lampasso has enabled countless leaders to unlock their potential through evidence-based coaching strategies. While her background lies in elevating C-suite executives and driving business results, Sunni has carved an unexpected niche - the dynamic world of electronic dance music.
