STILLWATER, Okla. – For many of us, the typical work day makes us feel like hamsters on a proverbial wheel. Plagued by crises and distractions, we work hard all day, but when we go home, we’re not much closer to reaching our goals. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way.
On October 27, as part of the Lunchtime Learning series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Bonnie Cain-Wood will present "What the Most Successful People Do at Work.”
In her book by the same name, author Laura Vanderkam shows how successful people employ certain daily practices to ensure their work hours are invested, not squandered. During this eye-opening session, Cain-Wood will provide strategies on how to take control of your career by taking control of your work day and, subsequently, make a positive impact on every other aspect of your life in the process.
Cain-Wood loves sunshine, movies, the color yellow and being a redhead. She serves as Manager of Library Communications at her alma mater, Oklahoma State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in environmental science and a Master of Science in mass communications. Cain-Wood stumbled upon a career in public relations after a life-changing afternoon washing dirt. She has worked in communications for more than a decade, specializing in education, libraries and the arts. Cain-Wood became accredited in public relations in 2007. Now, she enjoys mentoring students and sharing her skills and experience with others.
