WICT New York: Let’s Talk Tuesday

July 22, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Navigating a “New Normal” in Times of Change

In a virtual-only world, it’s easy to feel unmotivated and disconnected in our professional and personal lives. There are many uncertainties, and this can wreak havoc on our productivity.

How can we overcome these challenges to continue to be effective in the workplace? How do we stay focused on our goals while dealing with remote work, virtual challenges, company reorganizations and other unforeseen obstacles that pop up along the way?

This month, join peers and industry leaders for WICT NY’s first Let’s Talk Tuesday of 2020. We’ll share, discuss and learn strategies to help us all continue to be effective and motivated in the new “virtual” workplace.

July 28
6:00 PM-7:00 PM ET (session)
7:00 PM-7:30 PM ET (networking)
