Can executive presence be learned to help your career aspirations, or is it an elusive art? Ascend New York Chapter invites you to join an exclusive session with Wesley Hom, National Ascend Board Member and former IBM executive, to answer this thought-provoking question and learn valuable insight to how you can apply this to your career.
