Career Transition Branding

Amy Gleklen, founder of Next Game Plan, is one of a select group of external coaches selected by the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School to serve their alumni. She has worked with alumni internationally. She also co-developed and facilitates a virtual workshop series for iRelaunch on career exploration and transition for people returning back to work after a career break.

Here's an example of a webinar Amy created and led entitled, "Transitioning Back to Work: Matters of the Heart" for University of Pennsylvania alumni.

From our initial phone conversation, I knew that Amy was the coach for me. I talked to several career coaches before I chose one and none of them had Amy’s enthusiasm, optimism and planned out steps for the whole coaching process. I value Amy’s uncanny ability to get inside my head and teach my things about myself, some of which I was rather surprised to learn. I also could tell that Amy really cares, this is not just a job for her. She also made me feel comfortable in a process that I knew nothing about and was a little nervous to undertake in the first place. Her personality and the way she was able to put people at ease. Her genuine care for her clients. It didn’t take very long for me to feel like I had known her much longer than I had. Amy came up with ideas that I never would have thought of on my own. I couldn’t be happier. As far as the future is concerned, I will never again have a job that goes against my core values. Thank you so much Amy, you have made an incredible difference in my life. As far as I’m concerned she’s perfect.
