What’s Next? How to gain confidence, certainty and fulfillment in your career.
Reinvention is defined as “the action or process through which something is changed so much that it appears to be entirely new.” Given the pandemic reality, the world is in a rapid reinvention and we need to do the same for our personal and professional lives. The speaker will walk you through key question and actions to begin this process.
- What am I good at?
- What do I love to do?
- What will people pay me to do?
- What does the world need?
- Be bold, take risks and learn/fail fast, strive for greatness.
- Intentionally build a network to learn and to multiple your impact.
- Be ready to pivot to make a bigger impact or seize a unique opportunity.
The speaker has reinvented herself from college drop-out/waitress/model to Big-Law litigator, master negotiator, business/operational leader, diversity advocate and now NGO/small business founder as well as writer/public speaker. She will share both stories and tips from her journey, which includes epic failure as well as measurable success, that she hopes will help you on yours.
- Free for members of The Koa Club
- Event limited to members only
