The EIS modules were created to assist high potential Pan –Asian managers and young executives to attain and assume leadership roles in major U.S. corporations. Over the years Ascend has gained significant insight into what works and the specific behaviors, competencies and experiences required at the executive level. Participants typically have 7 -15 years of experience, at the manager, senior manager, or professional level.

Consisting of five different EIS modules to choose from, we will be showcasing "Selling and Client Relationships” module at this event with a focus on Asian American leadership skill set.  Developing sales skills is crucial for business success and personal growth, no matter what profession you are in.
