This workshop is being offered as a stand-alone event but is also the kick-off to a three-week series.  This three-week program will help attendees craft, practice, refine, and ultimately nail their pivot story. Each attendee will walk away from this program with a solid pitch they can use to answer to answer the question, "So, tell me about yourself" in a way that sells yourself and the pivot you are making.  Learn more about this series here.
