Many people are having trouble finding a job in the current economic
slump, let alone a fulfilling career. Theresa Szczurek, owner of Technology and Management Solutions, will address this problem in a workshop entitled "Pursuit of Passionate Purpose: Principles for a Meaningful Life" at the University of Colorado on Saturday. A keynote speech on Friday precedes the program.
Szczurek`s Boulder company helps individuals and businesses organize and pursue goals through a special model and set of principles she has created.
Szczurek said she believes her plan can help people continue to feel fulfilled by their work and personal life. "It is the pursuit of passionate purpose, and not just its attainment, that brings ... satisfaction in life," she said.
Liz Valles, who spent time with Szczurek, said, "It was just so inspirational to me to finally try and achieve a balance in my life. I am pursuing my childhood passion ... and the seed was Theresa."
Szczurek has a long history in business and a Ph.D. in business administration. She founded and owned the company Radish Communication Systems, which she sold in 1996 for more than $40 million.
Her deep involvement in technology led to her nomination for the "Technology-driven Woman Award" that is being sponsored by the Colorado Women`s Foundation, News 4 and Subaru. Szczurek also has an interest in community service and was the president of the Colorado Business and Professional Women`s Foundation for two years.
Through her successful history in business and her involvement in community service, Szczurek developed her plan to help others succeed and find happiness. She founded her current business to use her expertise to help others. She now puts on workshops, gives speeches and offers one-on-one coaching. She uses independent contractors to supplement her programs.
Szczurek is working on a book based on her model for success. The book is scheduled to be out in 2003 and pre-publication orders are already being taken.
The CU workshop will be preceded by a keynote speech on Friday. Tickets for the speech are $20. Tickets for the workshop and speech are $145. Tickets can be purchased by calling (303) 443-8674, ext. 1 or online at www.tmsworld.com/publicity/PPPworkshop.html.
