Description

Join us for this informative Power Luncheon where KARE 11's Julie Nelson will lead a revealing discussion with top Twin Cites executive search experts Marcia Ballinger and Lars Leafblad on “Career Secrets From The World of Executive Search”. Whether you’re actively seeking a new role or considering a career change, you won’t want to miss this event. You’ll learn from the experts what organizations are looking for and how to effectively network both in person and through social media.

Marcia Ballinger has been a fixture in the Twin Cities executive search community for over eighteen years and is thrilled to be a co-founder at Ballinger | Leafblad, Inc. She is known for her body of work in recruiting across many sectors and functional areas; in the last few years, however, she has specialized in non-profit recruiting, most often working with boards of directors and search committees, assisting them as they make important, and often challenging decisions. Marcia got into executive search after a career in human resources and training for IBM and Norstan Communications. Marcia holds a PhD, Organization & Management from Capella University where her Dissertation Topic was Participant Self-Perceptions about the Causes of Behavior Change from a Program of Executive Coaching (done in conjunction with Personnel Decisions, Intl.).

Along with Nathan Perez, Marcia is the author of “The 20-Minute Networking Meeting,” and is a frequent speaker on the topics of networking, career management and practices in executive search.

Marcia has been recognized as The (Real) Power 50, Minnesota Business Journal, Top Women in Business, Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal, National Association of Woman Business Owners, Luminary Award.

Prior to co-founding Ballinger | Leafblad, Inc. Lars Leafblad was Leadership & Engagement Director at the Saint Paul -based Bush Foundation, where he directed the Bush Fellowship leadership program which has invested in 2,200+ leaders since its inception in 1965. He was formerly a partner at KeyStone Search, a Minneapolis-based executive search firm where he co-chaired the firm's civic practice, consisting of higher education, nonprofit and foundation clients. He is also founder and publisher-emeritus of Pollen, a nonprofit organization of 10,000+ civic- minded connectors who share ideas, career & civic engagement opportunities & peer-to-peer recognition. He was named a "40 Under 40" by Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal in 2007 and has appeared on MPR's "Daily Circuit" & "Midmorning" programs and on TPT's "Almanac." Lars has been recognized by Twin Cities Business magazine as one of "200 Minnesotans You Should Know” and one of the "The (Real) Power 50" by Minnesota Business magazine.

Julie Nelson joined KARE 11 in September of 2003, after working at KSTP-TV. Currently, Julie is the evening news co-anchor of KARE 11 News at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 10 p.m. each weeknight. Julie received Bachelor's degrees in Journalism and History from Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind.
