 Professional Development for Busy Women: The CliffsNotes!

There is a plethora of literature out there, but who has time to read it all? Between work and family commitments, most of us can’t stay awake to read for more than a few minutes at night. No worries! We’ve done the hard work for you! 
You’ll hear from four speakers, each of whom will deliver a high-level summary of the key points from a professional development book that they personally found to be helpful, inspiring and educational. Now is a good time to invest in improving your skills in leadership, communication, innovation, time management, productivity, and mindset! Now available in-person or virtual. Moderated by Amanda Koehler, CPA | CFO, MOCPA

Past participants said:
“This was the first event I’ve ever attended where I did not see a single person look at their phone. That says something.”
“Of all of the CPE events I’ve been to, this was hands down the best. Every speaker was spot on, and the connectivity between attendees was amazing.” "Consider hosting a firm or company table, and making it your own team’s retreat!
