Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter


Ms. Ann Brady

Establishing Goals that Ensure Success!

What are your goals for the next stage in business?  How do you plan to accomplish what needs to be done?  What new skills do you need to develop to move forward?

Ms. Ann Brady, Staff Development and Training Consultant of the Holland Consulting Group will share her understanding of the value of goals and how they contribute to organizational and individual success; the importance of collaborating to gain ownership, commitment, and motivation; and how to write meaningful SMART goals (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time based).

The Holland Consulting Group, a woman-owned, small business, has been providing customized training programs for over 30 years.  Ms. Brady has delivered professional training programs within several Fortune 500 companies, including the last ten years in the defense industry at Harris Corporation and DRS Technologies, where she provided essential management and leadership training, as well as pertinent on-the-job skills for all employees. Well versed in all of the core skills necessary for improving managerial performance, Ms. Brady also provides general human resources assistance to small companies that do not have an HR person on staff. 

Associated with several other training organizations, Ms. Brady is the program director for the Space Coast Chapter of Women in Defense, and is currently offering training classes at CareerSource Brevard in their Biz Launch Program.   In addition, Ms. Brady consults with local companies on their staff development and training needs.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 26 to experience first-hand Ms. Brady’s passion for training and coaching individuals to maximize their performance!
