Considering a career pivot? Or do you just like wine?
Pivot To Your Passion is a virtual wine tasting and panel discussion with women who have pivoted their career path toward their passions, offering encouragement to attendees who may be facing or considering a change in their career path, whether forced or voluntarily. You’ll enjoy the fruits of panelist Denise Gough’s personal pivot through our virtual wine tasting. In addition, the panelists will discuss what precipitated their career transitions, how they arrived at their passion and path, and how they actually made the changes.
Featuring Denise Gough, Jerilyn Bliss, Samantha Lane and Jill Johnson, four former executive-level professionals who have themselves pivoted toward their passions. They’ll share their stories and wine suggestions over a virtual happy hour, offering inspiration for attendees who may be contemplating a pivot in their own lives.
