Cecily Sommers, APF
Strictly Social: 6:00 p.m.
Conentrating on “good-fit” opportunities is critically important to professional growth and business development. It’s how careers are advanced and how organizations stay strategically focused.
In times of transition, fit is a reliable way-finding tool for what’s next. Global trends analyst Cecily Sommers describes how she linked good-fit opportunities to carve an unconventional career path from dancer to chiropractor to professional futurist. She shares how the pursuit of “the good fit” opened doors for her when others closed, and shows how these same principles apply in matters of strategy and innovation.
At once inspiring and practical, Sommers’ message is a “good fit” for people and organizations facing change. It has direct application for leadership development, brand strategy and corporate innovation. Participants will learn how to qualify a “good fit’ and use it to reinvent themselves.
