Pamela Heward was the keynote speaker. She did a great job talking about the personal development we need to do and assumptions we must let go of when in a career transition.

The presentation was also great for anyone starting their own business needing  to let go of assumptions that hold them back.

There is also some information on Phoenix area employers and resources for job hunters. Enjoy!
