    Dr. Suzanne E. Szabo, Mount Pleasant, passed away on March 1, 2012, at Washington Hospital Center after a prolonged illness.

    Born to Joseph and Mary Szabo (both deceased) of Anderson, South Carolina, she was an applied sociologist who headed a consulting firm, Organizational Research and Consulting. Her clients included the IRS, Ernst & Young, and the Defense Information Systems Agency. Educated at the University of Maryland University College (BA), Boston University (M. Ed.), and North Carolina State University (Ph.D.), she served in leadership positions with the American Society for Training and Development (national, Los Angeles, and DC chapters), and as president of Historic Mt. Pleasant. Known by all as a vivacious, beautiful, and caring person, she is survived only by her life partner, Dr. Joseph Robert White.

    Suzanne created the original strategic plan that hasn't really been updated since. Also in 1993 we partnered with the Hawaii chapter to create the 1st international conference before National did and gained a huge profit for our chapter.

    In lieu of flowers, Dr. White asks donations to be made in Suzanne's name to one of the following charities that she supported: the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Camps and Ghettos Encyclopedia Project; the Kennedy Center; the Smithsonian Institution; or Historic Mt. Pleasant.

    We are looking for training and development practitioners who would be willing to visit Claremont for an upcoming panel presentation for our graduate students who are studying this area.

    Panelists will be asked to give an overview of their experience working in the field of Training and Development, issues they have faced and lessons they have learned. Then, we will open the floor up for questions from the graduate students. I expect there will be 40-50 graduate students in attendance and food will be provided.
    • The first panel would focus on making strategic decisions about what training to offer in an organization as well as on the practice of delivering training and is scheduled for 4pm, Tuesday September 6.
    • The second panel would feature L&D practitioners who have been in the field and can speak to a career about training. She’d like a mix, instructional designers, trainers, managers, evaluators, you name it and is scheduled for 11:30am, Thursday November 3.
    Please contact me if you are interested.

    As trainers we focus on our instructional design and training activities but how often do we think about the use and power of our voice?

    Join us for an interactive session where you will learn about the 4 types of vocal qualities and how to apply them; relaxation exercises to free the voice; and techniques which quickly elevate presentation performance levels and effectiveness. 

    Our speaker, Nina Irani, President of UniqueSpeak Consulting has served as the speech and communication coach to Fortune 500 executives, politicians and public figures in the entertainment industry. Nina specializes in integrating cutting edge neurological findings with classic communication techniques to create a hybrid methodology for high performance presentation.
