To compete in the today’s demanding job market, candidates must demonstrate more than their scholarly accomplishments. Individual strengths and personal interests create networking opportunities to help stand out from other candidates. This will be an interactive workshop. Light refreshments will be served.

This interactive workshop encourages creative, out-of-the-box thinking to develop a Renaissance view of reality to assist participants with negotiating life’s challenges.   

W. Scott Griffiths has been building companies and successful brands for more than twenty years. He has directed branding and marketing for many Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurial companies. With degrees from Chapman University, Art Center College of Design and UCLA, Scott embodies many of the qualities of the “Renaissance man” he writes about in the new book he has co-authored with writer, Eric Elfman, “Beyond Genius: The 12 Essential Traits of Today’s Renaissance Man.” Scott is the author of three other books, two of which were best sellers, and assists many organizations, both for profit and nonprofit, with design, branding and marketing.

Dale Griffiths Stamos, twin sister to Scott, holds a master’s degree in Romance Languages and Linguistics from UCLA.  She is an award-winning playwright, with productions in the U.S. and abroad. She is also a songwriter, screenwriter, and producer; and speaks several languages.    A writing teacher and consultant as well, she works with writers of all genres, with a focus on story structure. She is currently co-writing with Scott the follow-up to “Beyond Genius,” about the emerging concept of the “Renaissance Woman” in modern life. “Out of the Shadow: Unleashing the Power of the Modern Renaissance Woman” will explore the extent to which multi-talented women both exhibit the traits of Renaissance men and how these traits play out differently in females, particularly those females who choose to include mothering as a vital aspect of work and life.
