KEYNOTE SPEECH III
We live in an exciting time unprecedented global innovation of all kinds. Many next gen leaders, coming from first or second generation immigrant backgrounds and or diverse cultural upbringing are caught between the tradition of what they were raised with within their households, cultures and community and a new world that lies beyond what they are familiar with – what lies beyond the “norm.” Two groups emerge: those that choose to remain “normal” in familiarity and those that choose to break the tradition and decide to transcend beyond the “norm.” The latter group often wear multi-hats walking in their unconventional paths as they transcend the norm. We will discuss how such choices play into and correlate with career development, networking skills, self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s career and life.
