11:00AM Rock your Career (Workshop)
The traditional model of working for one company for 40 years and getting promoted through time at the desk is over. Young professionals need to proactively manage their careers by developing authentic leadership, branding themselves, growing their network, and planning for balance. The strength of our community will depend on the skills and expertise of young professionals being fully harnessed. Come join your peers for an interactive discussion on tools and techniques to supercharge your career.
