Presenters: Rob Van Nevel and Sarah Gibson 

We’ve seen people transition from one business unit to another and thought, “How did they make that leap?” Or maybe we’ve even thought, “What do I want to do next in my career and how the heck do I get there?” Join us as we discuss:  
  • Business trends away from the corporate ladder to the corporate web and the impact on engagement and retention
  • How to help others or yourself transfer skills across different roles
  • The role learning and development plays in creating corporate webs
