Successful living does not always rely on a GPA, job title or salary. Instead, it can rely more around the ability to recognize and respond to opportunities as they arise partnered with the ability to be dynamic in the ways you apply your skillset, education and background to your current circumstance. Financial collapse, world pandemics, saturation of jobs upon graduation– change is the only thing that is constant. How agile can you be to roll with the punches and grab opportunity to engage with your surroundings and find success in the white space?
Advanced planning is great, but what happens when that plan fails – for any reason. Alexandra Amrami will be discussing some of her own planning-failures, how they have led her to new opportunities and how you can attune yourself to re-design those life-learnings into new opportunities. Let’s learn how to fall gracefully and get up with grit.
Requests for accommodations can be made when you register to attend. Please provide at least 7 days advance notice.
