Join us for “Fail Fast, Fail Frequently, Fail Forward: Strategies for Personal and Professional Success!”—a presentation by renowned educator and entrepreneur Amy Baldwin. Failure is often considered a “dirty word” for people who are driven to succeed, but failure is actually a necessary part of success. Learn more about what you can do to prepare for, embrace, and use failure to develop the skills necessary for personal and professional success.
