Finding Inspiration in a Pandemic

Since Covid struck the meetings industry, many of our members are experiencing career upheaval. The pendulum swings from job furloughs to job loss; job dissatisfaction to career disenchantment. Many have courageously tried to upskill, reskill, cross-skill and rebrand. But is this enough to create a ladder leading to a satisfying career, enjoyment and advancement? Our speakers will share successful transitions and provide guidance and real life scenarios to reshape your thinking versus rebranding your skills.

Learning Objectives:
1)  To broaden your mindset on the possibilities open to you.
2)  To provide creative and more targeted approaches to resume building.
3)  To understand how to analyze and leverage existing/new networks.

Our speakers include:

Mike Gamble, Founder of Tourism Diversity Matters and Co-founder of SearchWide Global

Bill Yetman, Chief Creative | Principal at BY DESIGN Training
