Career Strategies + Development (formerly Talent in Transition): Alumni Panel

When:  Jan 28, 2019 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (ET)
Associated with  New England


Please join us for the Career Strategies + Development Committee’s (formerly the Talent in Transition Committee) annual alumni conversation. In this series, we convene a panel of formidable industry peers to share their stories around career transitions they’ve made in the last year. Panelists will share how they navigated their role changes, experiences that surprised them, lessons learned, and advice and thought leadership in proactively positioning for change. Whether that change was the result of corporate restructuring, lateral internal moves or deliberate shifts within the corporate real estate community to grow and strengthen skills sets or pursue new adventures, these experts invite an evening of open dialogue and beneficial sharing.
