We’re targeting smart, talented, successful people who are still not truly happy.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Karen Judd Smith as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in international peace and justice. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“It’s an honor to present Karen with this important distinction,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her outstanding work as a consultant, coach and educator has contributed to greater success for her clients and students.”

Dr. Judd Smith, who has been involved in leadership training for many years, is nationally recognized as “The Maven of Meaningful Change.” She coaches individuals and teams in their quest to optimize their personal and professional capacities. Her highly impressive background includes experience as a maritime educator — both nationally and internationally — and working globally to effect change as a representative to the United Nations.

“I established Global Development Enterprise, LLC in 2007,” said Dr. Judd Smith. “Global’s ‘shoulder-to-shoulder’ consulting for startups, small-to medium-sized business and nonprofits is supported by online training, coaching and web components essential for today’s marketplace.”

Dr. Judd Smith is the author of How To Make Your NGO’s Advocacy Powerful and co-author of the soon-to-be-published book, An Eclectic Self-Help Book That Just Might Help You Succeed Where All The Others Have Failed. “It’s written playfully even though it is based on a lot of studies and research, and addresses a serious and still-overlooked area of emotional and spiritual fitness,” she said. “We’re targeting smart, talented, successful people who are still not truly happy. We’re already building projects around the book such as online and in-person training and coaching.” The tentative publishing date of the book is June 2015.
