These include project and campaign planning, communications metrics analysis, social media and web content management, budgeting, staff management, speech and script writing, editorial style guide creation, video production, photography, and print layout, among others. I have worked in journalism, public affairs, media relations, and nonprofit communications with time spent on Capitol Hill, U.S. Marines, newspapers, and a stay-at-home dad.

*** He’s back!

I am back from Singapore and brilliant week helping to chair the IQPC OPV Asia Pacific conference at the Grand Hyatt Singapore. I saw some of my old friends, like retired Commodore Ranjit Rai of the Indian Navy and retired Rear Admiral Massimo Annati of the Italian Navy, both of whom have served as expert sources in my writing on naval, maritime and security issues. The conference was not only well attended, but there was a tremendous diversity, with delegations from Thailand, Indonesia, Nigeria, China, Malaysia, Singapore, the U.S., Spain, France, Sweden, Turkey and more. There were many flag officers, both active and retired.

It was great to catch up with some of my IABC friends, include Hwee Suan Ong, Phillip Raskin and Anne Bast, and then Wei-Joo Ng the next evening. If that wasn’t enough, I made a quick trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and back, where I met up with IABC colleagues Nik Anis Nik Zakaria, Aisha Rashid and Azizah Wahid at the Twin Towers in downtown KL. I was with the A-Team (Anis, Aisha and Azizah!). Let me just say that you have never made such a quick trip exciting as I did when Nik Anis Nik Zakaria, GM for communications for Malaysia Airports has you met planeside and whisked though the airport as a VIP.

The Grand Hyatt Singapore gets high marks from me. It is a beautiful, functional and guest service focused hotel. My room rate was within U.S. State Department’s per diem rate for government travelers, and included one of the best breakfast buffets I have ever seen, actually more like five or six buffets. I had the American buffet one day, Chinese the next, Indian after that…

*** A little touchy:

United’s 777s from Tokyo to CONUS have just a few movies you can watch for freem, with the full entertainment package available for $10. The seatback monitor has a touch screen that is way too touchy. Try to select “map” (if you want to know how cold it is outside, for example), the cursor stops at “volume,” and you have to hit “back,” then try again. I spent way too much time trying to select something and having something else get selected instead. I wanted to smack the seat, except some body was sitting in it.

Communication revolutionized naval warfare. The lessons learned at sea apply to the business world, too. Good or bad communication can mean victory or defeat. History tells us how the ability communicate with ships at sea allowed commanders to share information, expand command and control, and build collaborative networks. This ability could also be exploited and manipulated. See how advances in technology brought about profound changes in leadership and management. Learn how misalignment can result in disaster and understand how ambiguity can lead to missed opportunities. Learn about vulnerabilities and countermeasures can confuse, deceive or defeat and see how the simplest forms of communication are often the best.

Bloomfield & Company

11.) Executive Assistant to the CEO, offered by Bloomfield & Co. (Staffing Agency), Washington, DC (DuPont Circle)

Executive Assistant to the CEO: Dynamic Private Sector Start-Up Committed to HELPING Start-Ups

Cringe at the title “Executive Assistant”? This is your job! This position is NOT for a “career Executive Assistant”. It is for a bright, extremely ambitious, naturally curious and capable “right arm” to a prolific business man tasked with starting up this highly prestigious national effort.

What you bring to the table:

 Smart, smart, smart! You have 1-3 years of Executive Assistant experience but have “ambition beyond that”— he does not need (or want) a career EA.

 You are able to thrive in a very ambiguous start-up organization (bonus points if you come from one!) with moving parts and constant (but exciting!) changes.

 Hyper-organized

 Worldly—well traveled—amazing common sense.

 Good judgment with the ability to anticipate needs

 A “natural connector”—you can connect the dots, connect with people—you just get it.

 Naturally curious— you want to learn about the business with an intellectual hunger. You are able to quickly “boot-up”.

 Polished and poised beyond your years. This is a highly visible position. Your boss is very connected and everyone wants to connect with him in light of this effort. You will be interacting with very high-level and respected individuals.

The Job:

 BRAND NEW company heavily funded by the two very influential foundations. Their mission is right in line with Obama’s quest to promote and encourage start-up business.

 Rapidly growing. This position supports the CEO and you will be the #1 employee. They are hiring and expanding and the role has the ability to grow (research, writing, marketing) based on your interest and needs.

 You are the true “right arm” to the CEO. He has founded many well-known companies and now is putting his golden touch to this effort. In light of the work this company is doing, many influential people want to meet and greet with him. Everyone who meets him adores him. He is a “man of the people”.

 If he is traveling, you will help build meetings and schedule his appointments—reaching out to new and old contacts and building some very powerful trips and events.

 He may have you do research on a project (if this is where your interest lies) or do extensive writing if you are drawn to that—small projects that add some oomph to your job.

 “They are not building an institution, they are getting stuff done.” This is a 3-Year project.

 He is also involved in other Boards—you will work on other projects but 80% of your time will be spent on this cause.

40.) Director of Graduate Studies, College of Design, Engineering and Commerce, Philadelphia University, Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia University is seeking a C-DEC Director of Graduate Studies with 5-7 years experience.

About Philadelphia University and the College of Design, Engineering and Commerce: As a result of a strategic planning process, Philadelphia University identified an opportunity within the University and a need in the marketplace to tear down the silos of academia and develop a fully integrated undergraduate curriculum with a focus on innovation. In the fall of 2010, the College of Design, Engineering, and Commerce (C-DEC) was announced. The new college is composed of the existing School of Design and Engineering and the School of Business Administration. In fall 2010, Dr. Ronald Kander, former director of engineering at James Madison University, was named executive dean of the College of Design, Engineering, and Commerce. The groundbreaking for a new building for the college will take place in the summer of 2011 with a scheduled opening of fall 2012. Total university enrollment is 2,800 undergraduate students and 625 graduate students; of this, DEC enrollments are 1,600 undergraduate and 250 graduate students; and as a unit within the college, the School of Business enrollments are 800 undergraduate and 200 graduate students.

Opportunity: Philadelphia University recognizes the need for education to evolve from strictly the training of quantitative skills and analysis to include complex problem finding, framing, prototyping, iterating and solving. Graduates will enter or re-enter a world that is complex, volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous where their skills must be portable across professional boundaries. Philadelphia University seeks a dynamic and creative leader to re-conceive the current graduate programs in the newly formed College of Design, Engineering, and Commerce. Programs include MS in Interactive Media, MBA (part-time and full-time), the Bridge Program (for non-business majors), MS in Tax, MS in Fashion Apparel Studies, MS Textile Design, MS Textile Engineering, and Ph.D. in Textile Engineering. The MS Industrial Design is being launched in fall 2011 and an MS in Design Management is undergoing development. Approximately 70% of the students in these programs are located in the School of Business Administration; 30% are located in the School of Design and Engineering. Given the relative size of the business programs, expertise in this area is especially important.

We seek a creative leader with administrative experience in program development and management. The leader of graduate programs would investigate and identify opportunities for substantial growth through curriculum redesign, delivery modification (online, hybrid, etc.), as well as the development of relationships within our University (please refer to the University Strategic Plan and Design, Engineering and Commerce [DEC] initiatives), as well as with other institutions in the U.S. and abroad.

Responsibilities: Responsible for program management, including budget, program marketing (working as part of team with Graduate Admissions and Public Relations departments), academic operations (course scheduling, faculty assignments, adjunct faculty screening and development), staff management (administrative and student worker staff), student advising, and coordination of internship opportunities (in consultation with Career Services Office).
