Whether established in a job for many years or transitioning to a new career, all of us need to evolve. “Be A Student For Life” is not only the final lesson in my book, 101 Lessons They Never Taught You In College, but it is a mindset and an approach that we all must take to continue to learn and transform as professionals.

For 30 years, Mark Beal has evolved from a traditional public relations practitioner in the 1990s to a full-service marketing consultant in 2017. If he did not, he would have become extinct. In order to transform, he had to embrace the advent of social and digital media and understand how to apply these new media channels to the consumer-facing marketing campaigns he and his agency develop for leading brands.

This interactive session is intended to inspire us all to learn, evolve, transform and continue to deliver value in our current role or the next one on the horizon in our respective careers.
