We All Need a Little Personal Evolution

I’m excited to kick off a new year of young professional programming.
Sarah Herrmann ICPAS Assistant Director, Member Outreach

I’m excited to kick off a new year of young professional programming with the Young Professionals Leadership Conference: EVOLVE. This year’s conference will explore the concept of professional evolution and flexibility. With the rapidly changing business environment, it’s essential to be adaptable and open to new opportunities. Change is something feared by so many, but it can lead to your greatest achievements. Learn from a diverse speaker lineup, from startup founders to managing partners, each of whom will provide perspectives on how to tackle your own personal evolution.

The conference will conclude with a keynote by Alpana Singh, who became the youngest female Master Sommelier in the United States, was former host of "Check, Please!" on PBS, and is now a successful restaurateur. Alpana will share her story of overcoming obstacles, cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit and growing her career in Chicago. (If you haven’t visited her restaurants, Terra & Vine, Seven Lions or Boarding House, you’re missing out!)

Here are five reasons not to miss this year’s conference.

ONE: Learn how to adapt and increase your agility in order to achieve success.

TWO: Be inspired by evolved leaders who have successfully embraced change.

THREE: Ask questions of those who have made it to the top.

Connect with today’s movers and shakers.

FIVE: Have fun on a Friday at a cool West Loop venue.

The ICPAS’ Young Professionals Leadership Conference never disappoints. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
