Special Chamber Webinar

Carroll County Chamber of Commerce COVID-19 Economic Update featuring Anirban Basu

COVID-19 has rocked what had appeared to be a nearly invincible economy; one associated with substantial job growth, multi-decade lows in unemployment, sturdy compensation increases, robust retail sales, low inflation, and strong financial market performance. Underneath that strong performance, however, was a set of fragilities that have been exposed by the pandemic. This webinar speaks to our current economic circumstances, how difficult things are likely to become over the foreseeable future, and the contours of the brisk recovery to come thereafter.

Anirban is Chairman & CEO of Sage Policy Group, Inc., an economic and policy consulting firm in Baltimore.  Anirban serves as the chief economist to Associated Builders and Contractors  and as chief economic adviser to the Construction Financial Management Association.  In 2007 and then again in 2016, Mr. Basu was selected by the Daily Record newspaper as one of Maryland’s 50 most influential people. The Baltimore Business Journal named him one of the region’s 20 most powerful business leaders in 2010.

Chamber Webinar

What’s EQ Got To Do With IT?

Presented by Kelly Frager,  Kelly Frager Professional Development & Training

 

Did you know 90% of the difference between star performers and average performers in the workplace is related to emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence is the “it’ factor and “it” can be seen everywhere from one-on-one interactions to team dynamics. EQ is the ability to understand and effectively apply the acumen of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity. In our time together, we’ll discuss the two sides of EQ: self and others, and what you can do to improve your EQ in your personal and professional life. Just by attending this webinar, you’ll increase your EQ!

 

As owner of Kelly Frager Professional Development & Training, Kelly partners with organizations to help them optimize the power of their people through training and consulting. Her collaborative relationship with her clients, customization of her message for professional realness & relevancy, and genuine, dynamic delivery style are the distinguishing aspects of her business.

Kelly has spent her entire professional career in the human resources, training and professional development fields. Her clients and employers have ranged from the hospitality industry to professional services firms. Over the years (30+ if you’re wondering) and across the industries, she has learned nearly ALL people want to feel good about their work and possess a desire to contribute and grow as professionals. This insight has been the motivator for her work.

Kelly LOVES the topic of Emotional Quotient (EQ, Emotional Intelligence) and thinks it is the sun of the success solar system. She is a certified professional in EQ through TTI Success Insights. In addition to training and speaking about EQ, she also utilizes assessments to measure EQ in order to help clients and their teams develop and grow.
