Professional Development Power-Up: Using Lessons from the Start-Up World to Empower Yourself, Get Noticed, and Get Ahead
Audience: Adults
Description: In the start-up world, entrepreneurs must learn quickly how to adapt to a changing landscape, take risks, and invest in and promote themselves. Professional development, in an increasingly fluid and uncertain world of higher education, should not be any different. Based on lessons learned from a 10-week bootcamp for budding entrepreneurs, we will explore how to develop our own value proposition, analyze our market, identify sources of professional development “funding,” create personal advisory boards, and pitch our elevator and wow statements. Get ready to launch!

Keywords: entrepreneurship

Duration: 2-3 hours
