Making Connections – It Was Really Big

Diane McGeorge welcomes a packed room of attendees from the podium
Wow! Nearly 150 were on hand Friday, March 10 for our first Making Connections that Work for You Seminar. It really worked! Thanks to all that attended!

We especially want to thank our keynote speaker, Alexandra Hall, Colorado Department of Labor and Employment’s Director of the Division of Labor Standards and Statistics and Chief Economist. She was inspiring, as she said she was instructed to be, but also funny and smart and gave us just enough stats to make us think. Best of all, she’s living proof that finding your career path doesn’t necessarily mean going in a straight line. A little wandering off-road doesn’t rule out success in the long run!

And thanks to all our employers and presenters and DVR staff. You helped make this valuable for everyone.

So, let’s get together and do this again!
