This is a call to action. If you can support the ambitions of others to meet promise and potential, then do it.
Many in my community and beyond use strategy and yet have unmet ambition. I respect that. So when I recognize others in that position and I have knowledge and resources to help, I will…
Support the ambitions
of others to meet
promise and potential.
I recently answered a University of Portland (UP) alumni bulletin board post requesting support:
Nicolas Vavuris is indeed ‘the ambitious among us’. I respect his initiative, but even more so Nicolas’s ability to think critically. He is busying himself by engaging others because he has something to offer – I never got the sense when meeting with him that he’s pursuing a job or a paycheck, for that matter. The key difference is the goal of his career at this point. He wants to contribute, grow his career in the public relations space, and develop enduring relationships with practitioners both in and out of his field.
If that’s not ambition, then I don’t know what is.
I support the ambitions of others to meet promise and potential. May I share Nicolas’s story so that others may support his ambitions, too? ‘Moving Strategy Forward’.
A Message From Nicolas
I am a public relations professional who wants to meet others who create change in this and related fields.
In my career, honesty, integrity and hard work has enabled both my employer and our clients to increase growth and thrive as socially-minded businesses. And, I’ve learned from my most successful colleagues and associates to keep an open mind and a constant willingness to learn and evolve. Is this so for other agencies?
Contact me if you’re interested in talking about these topics and more.
Moving Strategy Forward
After I graduated with an MBA (Strategy concentration) from the University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business, I sought support from the university’s Career Center. There, alongside Max Kalchthaler, I devised a strategy for professional networking. An informational interviewing campaign resulted, and I got the chance to meet dozens of University of Portland alumni. Since, I have met hundreds of others and moved my own strategy forward.
