Continuing Education

Resourcefulness is more important than resources.

As part of our efforts to create a community of early learning entrepreneurs BLI graduates are invited to participate in our Alumni program.  This series of workshops offer leadership training, continued business development and peer to peer engagement.  Experts in business and executive leadership facilitate the sessions.  Alumni receive CEU’s for attending each workshop.

2018 – 2019 Leadership Transformation Series for Early Learning Entrepreneurs

Developed for BLI by GCI Worldwide Corporation and facilitated by GCI Worldwide Corporation President and CEO Giselle Cheminand.  The series advanced new ways of thinking about “the business of being in business” and realizing the full expression of one’s self through prosperous meaningful work.

Alumni are also encouraged to continue developing and executing on business strategies by working with SCORE, SBDC and HBIF.  These are the agencies that provided consultants for our BLI Master Class participants and remain committed to their success.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.  You're on your own.  And you know what you know.  And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Alumni Comments

Dear Robyn, Giselle and Sponsors,

Thank you so much for providing leaders in the child care industry with the amazing experience of the “Embracing a New Way of Thinking about Success Workshop” on June 17, 2015 with GCI Worldwide Corporation. It was a truly mind changing event, filled with information and practical exercises that were supportive, innovative, research based and presented by Giselle Cheminand in a most skillful manner.

As an alumni of Robyn Perlman’s Business and Leadership Institute, I want to say that this workshop was an important link for me, connecting the information of all prior business workshops with my emotional mindset and belief system, creating new and positive channels of thinking. I was presented with a tool that now allows me to use the technical information most effectively.

Comparing the information provided by the Business Institute to having been given a brand new shiny car, now - having acquired the skills of embracing success, I received the matching key to this car. I am ready to turn this key and make a positive change in my life. With this, I will make a positive change in the lives of the young children who are entrusted in my care, who depend on my good decision making ability with their happiness and their future livelihood, needing to grow into a world that supports peaceful togetherness for all.

I want to thank everyone who participated in organizing and sponsoring this workshop. I am so very grateful to all of you. I think, I speak for all of the participating industry leaders when I say that your time, resources, generosity and dedication are the building blocks for a bright future of our youngest.

Thank you so much with all my heart!"

Good morning all,

Happy Wonderful Wednesday, I hope everyone is having an amazing day... It will be a privilege and a honor, to join everyone again, for this prestigious opportunity to continue growing and developing in the field of Early Childhood.

Since my participation my entire outlook, level of professionalism, and business practices have changed, I have always had passion and desire to effectively shape/mold the lives of children everywhere, by offering a higher level of education and care, through hands on learning, academics, physical outdoor exploration, nutritious meals, and most of all love and safety in a nurturing environment.

With that being said thank you again sincerely from the bottom of my heart, and please reserve my seat for this date, and please continue to impact the lives of those who serve in this prestigious field, as we impact the lives of children everyday...

Warmest Regards,
Schmeka Lyons
Director of the Early Learning Center

Good Morning Robyn,

I would like to thank you for affording me the opportunity of being apart of such an awesome program. The Leadership session on Wednesday was enlightening, empowering and engaging. Giselle is a phenomenal and motivating presenter. I gained a new perspective in thinking about success. It is my hope that others take advantage of such an amazing opportunity.

You are to be commended for your dedication and drive to empower others. I'm looking forward to the next Leadership session.

You can count on me!!!!

Warmest Regards,

Dear Alumni,

The Business and Leadership Institute for Early Learning and GCI World Corp launched yesterday the first session of the series sessions geared to help us the alumni taking our businesses to higher level of success and growth. This is a great opportunity to continue advancing our businesses.

Without a doubt, we all want to continue growing personally and professionally. As I attended the 1st session yesterday, I was able to understand how to embrace a new way of thinking about success, dig deep into my personal believes, evaluate what steps I need to take to face my fears and to dare myself, and what action plan I need to take to reach the success I would like to be.

Giselle Cherminan is a phenomenal presenter and amazing coach! I gained so much knowledge from her yesterday. She has a natural ability to connect and reach people right away. She connected with each and every one of the alumni attended yesterday's session. Giselle provides coaching services to many Big companies CEO's. Isn't it fantastic that Giselle's services provided to us the alumni at no cost.

The Sessions are free of charge for all alumni. I encourage you to take advantage of this valuable opportunity and not to miss the next session, scheduled to take place on October 7th, 2015 at NSU. Please take an immediate action and contact Giselle's office to register or send me an email. I will make sure you are registered. Hope to see you all on October 7th!
