An international thriller writer has published my photo on her website.
I’m so proud.
This beautiful photo was submitted by SWAT Team member Joan Ramirez. This is a Vietnam Orchid taken when Joan taught in a school outside of Hanoi. In addition to being a published author, Joan is also a photojournalist and English as a Second Language teacher—all grades. She was privileged to teach students in this magical country. Thank you for sharing this very pretty flower, Joan!
Picture these scenarios:
- I own a small company and need to hire staff. How do I know that I’m going about the hiring process in the most effective way?
Joan has 25 years of expertise working for a wide range of industries. She’s been there and seen the pitfalls of hiring a title instead of a qualified person.
Resource: Joan published a motivation handbook that is being used by high school students in Europe. You’re asking: HIGH SCHOOL? Think about it. They’re going to college and will soon be part of the work force. You need to ensure that they have the right stuff for your company.
- I am the communications manager in a large company. I hired several newly-minted graduates to do my social media and marketing. They’re not getting the message across about my product/service to my target audience.
Joan wrote a handbook that was used by a staff of over 1,000 in a multi-billion dollar company. If your staff doesn’t know the basics of clear, concise communications, your revenue will go down instead of upstream.
- I’m a sole practitioner. How can I position my service so that I rise above my competitors?
Joan published a book on leadership that has empowered many. In addition, she has her own communications consulting business that helps clients here and abroad.
Joan’s credentials to teach workshops: M.S. in Technical, Financial, and Business Writing, M.S. in English as a Second Language
Fortified by twenty five years of expertise in journalism, corporate writing, and entrepreneurial training.
