WITI (Women in Technology International) Helps Career Professionals Achieve Success in 2007 With Teleclass Series

Interactive Seminars Offer Insight About Professional Development Strategies

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- WITI (Women In Technology International), the world's leading professional organization for tech-savvy women, launches its premiere teleclass series this month. In response to surveys conducted at WITI's national conference, where the overwhelming number of attendees indicated a need for ongoing training and development, WITI's professional development program features six different interactive seminars that will inspire, challenge and engage audiences with topics about how to become a better leader, succeed in the technology sector, explore one's goals and missions along with other thought-provoking topics.

Participants will hear insight from respected leaders such as professional coach Kathy Hill, who specializes in career and life transitions with over 20 years of coaching, career counseling, sales, and marketing experience. Kathy will facilitate "Exploring Your Life Mission," a series of four unique one-hour teleclass sessions that teach how to develop one's mission statement for life.

Rayona Sharpnack of the Institute for Women's Leadership is also set to share her 5-step leadership model during "Trading Up -- 5 Essential Steps for Redesigning Yourself as a Leader from the Inside Out." This hands-on teleclass seminar will examine how to become an innovative leader and apply these unique principals to virtually any life experience. William Arruda and Kristen Dixon of the Reach Branding Club will discuss the branding secrets of the world's most successful companies and how entrepreneurs can apply those principals to better gain visibility and strengthen their market reach.

WITI teleclasses are designed to enable busy women to access the tools, connections and information they need without leaving their office. All WITI teleclasses are led by respected thought leaders committed to helping participants better align personal goals with their professional ambitions.
