The Ascend LEAD team of Alison Cheung, Jerry Iwata and Wanda Royse hit a home run tonight!
Tonight's LEAD event on "Taking Charge of Your Career" at BMP in East Palo Alto and sponsored by E&Y was a big hit tonight. Inspite of intense competition from the SF Giants and the World Series Game 1, we drew 30 attendees and speakers. All five panelists were terrific. Although each had started in finance and accounting ... their career diverged in five different directions. This provided plenty of discussion points for our audience.
After the spirited panel discussion, the group was broken into five small circles of five attendees and one speaker/mentor. The ensuing small mentor circle disscussions were the best part of the event, showcasing our Brand. Alison and Jerry had to drag everyone back into the large meeting room to close, even though we were approaching 9pm, one hour later than the scheduled ending time of 8pm.
Special thanks goes to Arthur Chin and Scott Chong for showing up to spread the Ascend Family Spirit.
