Upcoming Speaking Engagements
“Notice What You See and Become a Hero at Work”
A luncheon presentation by Margery Leveen Sher, ‘69
Thursday, April 7, 12 p.m., Buchner Hall/Alumni House
Margery Leveen Sher is a Goucher alum, speaker, writer, entrepreneur, and executive whose keynote presentations result in: increased focus, greater productivity, decreased stress, increased teamwork and communication, and increased readiness to laugh. Margery will teach us to notice the three keys of success – zippers, broccoli, and “human idiosyn-crazies™”. Although both Margery’s book – The Noticer’s Guide to Living and Laughing – and her motivational speaking have people “laughing until their cheeks hurt,” research in academic journals as well as articles in the Harvard Business Review have discussed the empirical fact that Noticing makes people more focused, more alert, and more productive.
Margery founded a consulting firm to assist corporations and government agencies with the development of family-friendly programs and policies –child care, elder care, telework, flex-time, etc. She successfully developed the firm for 15 years until it was acquired. She has also developed numerous non-profit organizations, and two charitable funds. In addition to her new book, she has a book and many articles on various aspects of work-life balance. She posts her weekly Noticings at www.DidYaNotice.com, and she is also an established blogger for The Huffington Post. Margery holds a Master’s Degree in Developmental Psychology from Rutgers University.
