This morningโ€™s Branding Yourself as a Professional event with Dr. Chrystal Stanley was a blast! Attendees trashed their values, learned the importance of appreciation and seeking feedback, and did a fun imagination exercise. Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Midland Credit Union, and everyone who attended!Image attachmentImage attachment
