Trident Proposal and Capture Expert, Melanie White, recognizes the importance of creating balance between her home and work lives. As the mother of four, including two active Cub Scouts, and an integral member of the Trident Team, Melanie strives to unlock the secret connection between professional growth and personal fulfillment. She shared her story and strategy for achieving work/life balance at the recent Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) Bid and Proposal Conference in Seattle, WA.
Melanie’s presentation titled “Becoming Your Own Best Orienteer: Charting Your Professional Development Path” defines a strategy for identifying and evaluating personal goals in order to prioritize them for action. “I have simply never been able to accept that I, or anyone, should have to sacrifice personal fulfillment for professional advancement. Satisfaction comes in many different forms. We should be able to build our own – à la carte,” explained White.
“We are excited to support Melanie in this opportunity to share one of our fundamental values with the members of our professional community,” said Trident President, Kristen Kavanaugh. “As a small business, we are deeply committed to empowering all of our consultants to find balance and develop a professional path that works best for them.”
The APMP Conference was held at the Seattle Sheraton May 26-19, 2015 and drew over 700 proposal development professionals from multiple countries. This is an annual conference sponsored by industry leaders including Shipley Associates and the Lohfeld Consulting Group, Inc.
