Developing Executive Presence Series 2.png

When we own our story, we claim our power. In this workshop, students will be invited to reflect on their professional journey to tell the story of who they are in the workplace today. Students will find a deeper connection with owning their own professional experience and telling their story with confidence and creativity. Now more than ever, it is critical that we take ownership of our professional trajectory so that we can intentionally design the next steps on our career path.
