The popular AITP Chicago After Work Leadership SIG meeting  will be held at Granite City in the Northwest Suburbs.  It will be our first post-Covid live event.  Granite City is located immediately South of the Woodfield Shopping Mall just off of Meacham and Woodfield Road. 

This is an excellent opportunity to network with like-minded professionals,  enjoy great food and drink and catch up on the latest happenings in your field, develop leadership skills, and learn about career opportunities.

Topic: Future-Prepping Your Career: How to Thrive Now and In the Years to Come

What a year we've lived through, right? As you peer into the future, perhaps you have a sense of relief. Of anticipation. Or maybe the craziness of the last year just amplifies fears about the future as it brought on so much disruption.

In this keynote, Andy Kaufman will lead a discussion on how to future-prep your career. The next disruption maybe won't be a global pandemic, however disruptions are here to stay. We'll talk about practical ways to continually prepare for the future, with ideas from many of the thought-leaders that Andy has interviewed on his People and Projects Podcast. Join us for this optimistic, action-focused discussion that will prepare you for this year and beyond.

As a result of this keynote, participants will be able to: 

  • Explain why complacency is so tempting (and how to overcome it)
  • Describe how thinking like an entrepreneur helps you prepare your career for the future
  • Describe how to make yourself and your work more visible (without being a jerk)
  • Explain strategies to make it easier for your next job to find you instead of you looking for your next job
