Whoa-wee! We say this A LOT, but we are once again EXCITED! October's event will bring in the brilliant mind of Tessa Young sharing her insights in a talk called "If you’re doing your job, you’re doing it wrong". We can't wait to share this presentation with you all.

You get all your tasks done, meet requirements, and accomplish project goals, so that’s enough to get that promotion… right? Wrong. Unfortunately, being good at your job isn’t everything. Checking boxes won’t get you noticed or advance your career. People need to go above and beyond expectations to stand out. But how do you make sure you’re focusing on the right activities – the things that management will notice? If you don’t know where to start, you’re not alone. Many of us can relate to feeling “stuck” and unsure about how to move beyond our current situation. Join Tessa as she shares the lessons she learned when she created a completely new career path for herself and transformed her life through relationships, resiliency, and ranking priorities. We’ll explore what you can do to ensure job security, advancement, and growth, while balancing your priorities and goals.
