Through clear guidance and incredible stories, Ann will teach you:
-How to define your abilities and speak up so that you can be recognized for the unique capabilities you bring to the table
-How to create opportunities for yourself when options appear limited and build a purposeful career
-What it takes to build the confidence you need to build your dream career
- How to create an empowered, actionable plan for taking control of your professional identity and get promoted.
