City Year New York's Women's Board to Host Women's Leadership Workshop Featuring Monica Murphy of The Speech Improvement Company

BROOKLINE, MA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 21, 2014) - The Speech Improvement Company today announced that Monica Murphy, a second generation Senior Coaching Partner, is the keynote speaker and presenter of the Women's Leadership Workshop hosted by the City Year New York's Women's Board. This interactive communications workshop, uniquely designed by a woman for women, draws upon Monica's 20-years of experience helping senior executives improve their communication skills and develop strategies, techniques and ease with communication.

"The City Year New York Women's Board members are passionate advocates for our work and giving them the opportunity to hear from The Speech Improvement's Monica Murphy will help support the growth and success of our organization," said Erica Hamilton, Executive Director of City Year New York. "Today's workshop provides a growing community of City Year champions with the tools and skills to become more effective communicators in their professional careers and philanthropic activities. We are thankful for Monica's time and excited to see the positive ripples that come from today's workshop."

City Year, a national education focused non-profit, launched its Long Term Impact goal in 2012 that will, when reached, dramatically increase the urban graduation pipeline. An important strategy for reaching this goal in New York was creating a Women's Board to engage women from a diverse range of industries and communities.

"Bain Capital and the City Year's Women's Board selected Monica to lead the Women's Leadership Workshop because of her wealth of knowledge and keen sensitivity in helping senior female executives develop stellar communication skills," said Dorothy Crocker Sumption, Director, Investor Relations, Sankaty Advisors LLC, an affiliate of Bain Capital, and current City Year Women's Board Member. "Our goal for this event is to give these women a skill set on which to draw that can help them improve their public speaking and general communication skills. It is a great way to raise awareness for City Year New York among a group of professional women who are already active in their communities." 

Since its earliest days, Bain Capital and its employees have supported City Year with more than $25 million in donations and hundreds of volunteer hours. Bain Capital is proud to be working with City Year New York's Women's Board and The Speech Improvement Company on this workshop. Bain Capital is also honored to serve as presenting sponsor of City Year's 25th anniversary in 2014.

"It is an honor to be selected and recognized by City Year New York's Women's Board and Bain Capital to host this event for some of the most powerful female executives and philanthropists," said Murphy. "Developing outstanding communication skills is key to anyone's success because it builds upon and solidifies successful relationships. As women, we face unique challenges that we need to be aware of to successfully overcome. This workshop will identify those challenges, and further empower these already successful women, giving them useful techniques to help them raise their communications bar even higher."

Monica is a second generation Senior Coaching Partner with The Speech Improvement Company. For over 20 years, Monica has become a highly sought after coach and consultant to executives worldwide. She has changed thousands of people's lives around the world by helping them become more effective communicators.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
