What is one piece of practical advice you have gained from the WICT Network Southeast events that can benefit others? Technology, minds, and society. These three things are constantly changing, and it is our job to keep up and get ahead of the curve when they do. Put your game face on when faced with challenges big or small because opportunity awaits those who are ready to step up. I believe this mindset is achievable with an amazing support system such as The WICT Network.
