Redefining Yourself; Redirecting Your Career


While common wisdom has it that it's always easiest to transition into a similar role, sometimes it is more opportunistic to redirect your career into a new type of role.  This may mean redefining your skills by taking a wide-angle look and then shifting the close-in focus.  For example, from small company leader to large company contributor; or vice versa, from large company contributor to small company lead.  Join us for a panel discussion on taking a different lens to your expertise, with with one of your goals to focus on making a difference in your career transition.
