RocChamber Future Leaders: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Young professionals are empowered by technology, with a unique global perspective that is valuable in today’s workplace. But the true keys to getting things done are interactions with the people we work with on a regular basis. In this workshop on November 15th, learn how to build crucial connections, identify and use the strengths of those around you, and find inspiration to help you stand out from the crowd. After the session, we’ll cross State St. for a social hour at The Spirit Room ~ Rochester’s newest downtown haunt ~ for craft cocktails and Southern-inspired bites! Free for all employees of Rochester Chamber companies, $15 non-members. Find more information and register here.
