Creating Your Authentic Introduction
Does it make you uncomfortable to talk about what makes you great? You are not alone. Talking about ourselves isn't a skill we're taught in school, but sharing why you're fantastic in an authentic way is key to getting what you want in your career and life. Join Heather Whelpley, career and executive coach, as she shares tips on talking about yourself in a way that doesn't feel pushy or salesy. Come away with an authentic elevator speech you'll feel comfortable sharing at your next networking event! The White Box Club™ meetings create opportunities to learn from industry experts and meet others who are in career transition or thinking of new career options. Plus, the meetings give you a good reason to get out of the house and hang out with good people who care. Now what could be better than that?! Each TWBC meeting includes introductions, a topic presentation, coaching tips, and time for networking and making new connections. Membership and meetings are FREE. And when you find that great new opportunity, you can pay it forward to future club members by making a donation to The White Box Club™ online. To ensure attendance, please RSVP early for the meeting(s) you wish to attend and confirm location and final content before each meeting date. If you RSVP for a full session, you'll be placed on an automated Waiting List. Please be sure to change your RSVP to "No" if you're no longer able to attend to ensure that members who are waiting can take your seat. We're looking forward to seeing you a future Meetup!

What we're about

The White Box Club™—appropriately named after the daunting white boxes many employees receive to "pack up their things"—was created to provide support, encouragement, resources, and networking opportunities to anyone who has found themselves laid off, unemployed, or in career transition.

Meetings create opportunities to learn from industry experts and meet others who are in career transition or thinking of new career options. Plus, the meetings give you a good reason to get out of the house and hang out with good people who care. Now what could be better than that?!

Each TWBC meeting includes introductions, a topic presentation, coaching tips, and time for networking and making new connections. Membership and meetings are FREE. And when you find that great new opportunity, you can pay it forward to future club members by making a donation online at https://bit.ly/2vjT2M1
