Work That Matters

Wednesday Luncheon
May 17, 2017

So often we think of a career in a given industry as the ending point. What if we flipped that mindset? What if acquiring that position or desired career wasn't the end, but just the beginning? Jeff Civillico challenges you to view a successful profession in whatever your field as the beginning and not the end. What could you accomplish if you re-imagined your professional career as an opportunity to do, as Jeff calls it, "work that matters?"
