IN A male-dominated town focused on construction it is important for Gladstone to celebrate the roles of women in industry as well.

International Women's Day is a great way to focus on this, and the Australian Institute of Management's luncheon on Friday, March 7, encourages women to win in business and in life.

Everything women need to achieve their full leadership potential is within reach, and special guest speaker Judy Reynolds understands this better than most.

The director of the Gladstone Ports Corporation, founder of Opening Gates and the previous owner of an award-winning accounting and financial planning business, Judy will discuss living by design, taking the lead and making a difference.

She will help guests reflect on their own leadership journey and be inspired to take it a step further.

"Prepare to discover that you do in fact have everything you need to 'play your bigger game'," as Judy explains why it is time to take control and let choice, not chance, determine destiny.

AIM Gladstone's International Women's Day luncheon will be held on Friday, March 7, at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre from midday.

Make a booking on 1300 882 895, before March 4.

UPDATING YOUR PROFESSIONAL STATUS

AIM has also compiled a list of actions that will turbocharge your career in 2014 and beyond.

1. Update your resume at least twice during the year whether you are actively seeking a new position or not.

2. Just as health experts encourage us to stay fit by factoring in incremental exercise, factor incidental learning into your daily routine.

3. Those who write well will inherit the earth. Communication is all about the receiver. Resist the temptation to over-explain, make assumptions or abbreviate in an informal manner out of sync with business etiquettes.

4. Read, summarise and review a management book once a month and distribute the summary to five colleagues - four in your current network and one new.

5. How you sound and how you think you sound are two entirely different things. Your voice can impact your career. Pick a topic you are passionate about and prepare a 10-minute presentation. Record yourself on your smartphone and play it back. Consider both form and content.

6. Exercise your brain by doing something that you would not normally do. The plethora of material on brain science and neuroscience is reinforcing a message - when it comes to your brain, it's use it or lose it. If you want to turbocharge your career, an agile and adaptive brain will be your best friend.
