There award-winning, executive coach and leadership expert, Fran Zone will share tools on how to present yourself in a memorable and impactful way. Enjoy food, drinks and networking with fellow WIB members and UCSF post docs.
In a world of short attention spans and brief encounters, standing out from the pack requires the ability to be Smart Out Loud in real time. The Smart Out Loud do not necessarily know all the right answers; they know the right thing to say, when to say it, how to say it, and how to turn every interaction into an opportunity. The future belongs to them because they own the present. Award-winning executive coach and leadership expert, Fran Zone, will join us to share her proven tools for transforming ‘showing up’ into seizing the day.
Two door raffles:
1) Zone Method tutorial and a mentorship opportunity with Fran Zone.
2) Burrill 2012 report: Innovating in the New Austerity
