Communications-focused workshops

May 1 is the first workshop in partnership with Thrive 45° Young Professionals Group. Well-rounded communication is important for every professional, but particularly for YPs that must be able to participate in dialogues across every type of medium.

In Part 2 of Cultivate: Authentic Communication, we’ll be focusing on personal communication. Scott Gillespie, owner at RAZREYE, will be leading us in a Core Values discovery exercise and discussion on why, when, and how to use Core Values to build your career and lead a purpose-driven life. Kalin Sheik, owner of Sweetwater Floral and Sweetwater Lavender Farm will then share how she uses social media to build her business, her personal brand, and how to cultivate a supportive tribe around you.
