Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions

Statement of Support: 

As an organization that empowers experienced professionals, managers, and executives for successful career transitions, 40Plus of Greater Washington serves professionals of all races and ethnicities. We stand firm in our support of all people who have been affected by the horrendous racist and violent acts in our country.

We condemn the police brutality that led to the tragic and needless death of George Floyd, along with others before him such as Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile and Eric Garner. We also condemn the violence, bigotry and systemic racism that has occurred during the past 400 years, particularly against black men and women in our nation. Furthermore, we stand firmly against discrimination of any kind including age discrimination, which frustrates many of our members during their search for new employment.

We offer our condolences to the family of George Floyd, his friends and loved ones. As a way to honor his memory, we stand ready to work with other agencies and community-based organizations, along with the community at large, to end injustice in all its forms against the oppressed and all persons of color.

“4 Bits of Good Luck”--How to Turn Bad Events into Good Fortune

Speaker Website:

This talk deals with the concept of luck: what it is and - what it is not. It mixes in some fun, some scientific research, and some specific actions the individuals can take to improve their likelihood of success in life and their job search.


Mike Schmidtmann teaches high-tech sales organizations how to recruit and hire effectively. As part of the “4-Profit” group, he works with hundreds of I.T. and Communications Solution Providers all over the country to identify, hire, and develop top sales and management personnel. Mike is co-author of the upcoming book “Talent Tracks – Recruiting, Interviewing & On-Boarding Top Talent for Your Solution Provider Business.”

Mike has been involved with sales management and sales training for over 25 years. He spent ten years at Inacom, including three as National Director of Sales for Inacom Communications.

In 1998, Mike founded the Mid Atlantic Sales Region for Strategic Products and Services. Mike’s business was ranked the #1 Telephone Reseller in the Washington DC Metro area by the Washington Business Journal in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Mike is a certified trainer for the Dale Carnegie Sales Course, and has taught sales training seminars for many organizations. He is a member of Toastmasters International, and is a frequent public speaker on business and sales topics.

Plan to join us after the meeting for networking.  Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.

Attire is business casual, recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this important networking meeting.

Doors open at 9:00 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
