ICAN Speaker Series: Stretch into your Future with Tara Jaye Frank

ICAN Speaker Series: Stretch into your Future with Tara Jaye Frank

First of four events begins May 25


Omaha, Neb., May 5, 2016 – The Institute for Career Advancement Needs (ICAN) will host a four-part Leadership Exchange Speaker Series as a new expansion to their leadership event offerings and an opportunity to build a community of inspired leaders – creating a valuable network based on a common interest of accelerating leadership capability, life goals, business success and powerful conversations.


The topic of the first event is Stretch into Your Future with Tara Jaye Frank from 3 – 5 p.m., Wednesday, May 25 at the Embassy Suites, 12520 Westport Parkway, La Vista. Frank will provide a fresh perspective for anyone looking to up their professional game, with a discussion on how people get promoted by demonstrating their potential to do more. This usually happens when they go above and beyond, in the form of a special project, leadership of a resource group, participation on an internal team, or just additional responsibilities.


A sought-after thought leader and writer on cultural intelligence, speaker Tara Jaye Frank is VP of Multicultural Strategy at Hallmark, and author of “Say Yes: a woman’s guide to advancing her professional purpose,” a practical guide to crafting a career leaders can believe in and achieve. Also, as Founder and CEO of TJF Career Modeling LLC, Frank helps leaders, groups and companies define their vision and develop strategies to advance their culture and leadership goals.


Tickets to the program are just $89, or $300 for all four events, and can be purchased through ICAN’s website. Upcoming Speaker Series Events include:

  • 12, 2016: Radical Resiliency: Transforming in Changing Times with Eileen McDargh
  • 7, 2016: Collaborative Intelligence with Angie McArthur
  • 26, 2017: Keeping it Real: The what, why and how of Authentic Leadership with Joe Gerstandt and Jason Lauritsen


These events are held to bring together the entire business community – large and small – around top-of-mind business leadership topics, enhanced learning, and varied leader development content in accessible, experiential and beneficial formats. Each event features the presentation of engaging, interactive and thought-provoking content to a range of 200-300+ leaders who gain knowledge and connection through experiential learning and knowledge acquisition. Attendees will leave prepared to launch meaningful and informed conversations back at the workplace and in the community.
