Pamela Sue Gockley, author of The Reputation Factor: Repositioning to Succeed, will be visiting Firefly Bookstore on Thursday, November 15th, 2012 from 5 pm to 8 pm. She will be speaking about her book discussing the role of reputation in one's career development.
She decided to write The Reputation Factor based on her successes, failures and observations from being a business woman and entrepreneur in a male dominated technology industry. The theme of the book focuses on personal professional development. It has many common sense ideas written with personal stories and a sense of humour.
In describing her work, Ms. Gockley says: “If you are not thinking about how you are perceived, you need this book. As a career coach and mentor, I have met thousands of people that are struggling to be successful, to make lateral moves in their current career or are having trouble finding a career after college. “Your reputation is the grease that can make life changes seamless and smooth. From this The Reputation Factor was born.”
Pamela Gockley was born in the farmland of southeast Pennsylvania and is the first in her family to graduate with a university degree and the first to start a business. Pam holds an AAS degree in Business Management and a BS degree in Political Science from Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA.
Ms. Gockley is currently CEO/President of Vigilant Corporation, a web and print based advertising company. She also founded Gockley Associates in 2004, offering corporate mentoring and training, especially pertaining to women and their increasing influence in the business world.
