This is what one Wharton alum said about Lawler:
"The first time I heard Lawler speak, I was at a low point in my professional life. I had taken a job with a big-name consulting firm, but my work left me surprisingly unfulfilled. Although I was unhappy, I couldn't imagine doing anything else--I had begun to believe that all work was like this! Listening to Lawler speak made me realize that "work" didn't have to be stressful, boring and upsetting."

Drawing on powerful personal stories, testimonials and recent research, Lawler will:

- Deliver a convincing argument why you should start working your passions--starting NOW!

- Debunk the facade of Work/Life balance and challenge you to rethink your definition of wealth and success--if money talks, it can also lie.

- Reveal some fascinating facts regarding reaching that seemingly elusive target of happiness

- Present The Five Ps, a process employing standard business tools to help you identify and bring your passions to market. The Five Ps have been hailed as a "breakthrough in pragmatic transitioning" and per David Ulrich, ranked most influential professor on business by Business Week magazine "by mastering the Five P's we can take control of our lives and careers."
