Now I have a clearer understanding of the direction I would like to pursue and the steps I need to take to find a job that fits my goals.-   Jen B, Dream Big Career Retreat Participant

He has a unique ability to help others to identify their hidden strengths and motivate them to achieve success. His experience in conducting more than 5000 interviews to select people for a wide range of professional and volunteer has given  him experience from the “other side of the table” to help clients succeed”

Wayne set up these workshops to help participants to develop a powerful vision of their future career and life.  He is convinced of the importance of this because clients who have this vision, create a search strategy that lands on a career path and in the job they want, faster.

A few words about Pay-What-You-Think-Its-Worth: You get to enjoy the whole workshop. Then at the end of the workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to make an additional contribution to pay us what you felt the workshop was worth. In our past workshop, participants paid between $250-$300 total for the workshop. We do this because the workshop may be more valuable to some than others and why should you both pay the same amount? We also believe in changing the way that business is conducted and ultimately challenging our economic system.  We are challenging you to think deeply and honestly about the long term value of what the workshop taught you and what it will bring you in your life.  We trust our community, and the excellence of our workshops, enough to let you determine what you’d like to pay.  Pay-What-It’s-Worth pricing makes no judgements about the financial abilities of the participants involved.

The gift economy represents a shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, scarcity to abundance and isolation to community.
