Trish MacPherson

How do you learn to be not just good but great at what you do?  How do you evolve your career and your life and handle the missteps along the way? Life is a journey of learning and growing and one way to help determine your path is through relationships and mentorships.  How do you mentor and/or find a mentor?  How scary is it to be a mentor or ask for a mentor, the good the bad and the ugly!

BJ Santavy

BJ will take a look back over the last 5 years from her first appearance at this event and will speak about her lessons from her recent Inka Trail adventure and how these experiences relate to her personal and professional development. Gain valuable insight from BJ on how to set goals, stay motivated and set yourself up for success no matter what your goals are.
