Building Meaningful Relationships for Your Career

Did you ever ask yourself:
  • “Why does she know so many people?”
  • “How does he always come up with someone who can help?”
  • “Is there a way to build a powerful network to boost my career?"
  • “Can I get to Kevin Bacon in 6 steps or less?”
Come to the WEST workshop “Building Meaningful Relationships for Your Career” to find out! Chesley Chen, WEST Co-Chair and CEO of g.Root Biomedical, will share the why’s and how’s from a practitioner’s viewpoint. Ches has been building his network of connections starting with kindergarten (no kidding!) to this very day. This WEST virtual workshop will mix theory with practice. You are guaranteed to walk out with more connections than you walked in with.
