Listen and Learn How Blind People Really Get Jobs

LightHouse to Offer 22 Live-Stream Hours of Intensive Employment
Retreat Starting

Want to know the inside scoop on how blind people get job after job even in this
 economy? Want to listen in as blind professionals and blue-collar workers tell
their stories of job success? And want to learn how blind employees
manage to keep
up their self-confidence and work-life balance?

The LightHouse for the Blind is beginning today an unprecedented four-day summit
 at its Enchanted Hills retreat in Napa, California. This lively
immersion gathering
will bring together more than 60 participants to talk seriously about
And not just how to shake someone's hand or format a resume, but the
deeper motivation
and techniques everyone needs to win their next job.

Presenters will include Marty Nemko, Bay Area job coach, author and radio host;
Kirk Adams, CEO of the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind; Elcio
Barcellos, Vice President
for Global Recruitment at Hewlett-Packhard; Michael Bullis, longtime writer and
employment motivator; Gena Harper, a top executive with Smith-Barney; Mike May,
entrepreneur and adventurer; Joe Xavier, Deputy Director, California Department
of Rehabilitation; Tim Ford, attorney with the California Department
of Health Services;
George Wurtzel, lifelong blind advocate for blue collar employment;
and many others.

The live-stream is not limited to a few professions or career paths.
In fact, among
the dozens of attendees in Napa will be people in law; high tech and
nursing; rehabilitation; counseling/therapy; ministry; chemistry/physics; social
 work; interpreting/translation; piano tuning; administrative support;
customer service; human resources; and advertising.

Our live-stream will begin on Tuesday, September 6th at 1:00 p.m.
Pacific Time and
continue until 6:00 p.m. that day.  We'll resume the live presentation Wednesday
 and Thursday at 8:45 a.m. and present our lively lineup until roughly 5:00 p.m.
 each of those days. We'll wrap up with some powerful presentations
Friday morning,
September 9th, from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

The stream is free of charge, and we hope you will cross-post this
information to
any individual and organization who could use a powerful boost to
their own employment
objectives. The LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco is proud to offer this
 motivational and fun seminar to our community free of charge.
