LEAD Series: Tell Your Origin Story Presented by Texas MBA & Texas MSTC

January 24, 2020 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM (CST)


This event registration includes an opportunity to give to the Austin Young Chamber Foundation. As the giving arm of the Austin Young Chamber, our Foundation leverages your giving and that of your fellow members to support missions and causes that ensure everyone in our community has the opportunity to thrive. With as little as $5, you can help amplify our giving. Learn more here.

What is your superhero origin story? Or asked in a more professional context: who are you and why does that matter to people? Your professional bio isn't the narrative version of your resume, it is your best tool to start connecting with new opportunities. 

This workshop will take a values-based approach to sifting through the thousands of data-points in your life and developing a compelling story to engage potential clients, collaborators and employers. You'll leave with a stronger sense of purpose and a plan for engaging more people in the story of you.
