The Best Way to Spend an Hour This Week

master classesOur recent executive education surveys have shown time is the greatest obstacle of professional growth. I cannot quite say we’ve conquered time, but we have made it easy for you to get first-rate executive-level education in weekly one-hour chunks. Each week, we bring in one of the brightest minds – career advisers, business leaders, leadership guides, and wellbeing experts – to share their insights with the ExecuNet community.

Here’s what attendees of recent sessions had to say afterward:

  • The best hour I’ve spent all week…maybe all month.”
  • “The strategies provided in Master Class are above and beyond what is available in the marketplace today. It’s an excellent development forum.”
  • “Extremely knowledgeable, experienced, great speaker. The content was well-organized, timely and relevant. The examples were immediately helpful.”
  • “Provocative…fresh perspectives…insightful…practical…actionable.”

The sessions this month will explore women in the boardroom, job search strategies and turning your back on corporate life. Here’s the line-up:   Soph, insert images to left

Pete GilfillanYou’ve had enough of answering to a boss who doesn’t appreciate you, the extraneous company meetings that go nowhere, the unavoidable politics of corporate America, and lack of job security?

In this session of ExecuNet Master Class, you’ll hear from someone who did exactly that. Entrepreneur expert Pete Gilfillan and a special guest will join ExecuNet Master Class Host Anthony Vlahos to talk about taking control of one’s destiny, conquering the natural fear of a new path, what it takes to get started, and the biggest lessons learned so far.
