Workshop #1: Putting Your Best Foot Forward

We are excited to announce that our first MBYC workshop for 2023-24 will include two dynamic speakers who will offer you insights on how to put your best foot forward by following your heart and maximizing your natural talents.  

Jake Capps, Managing Partner at Meaningful Partners, a company that invests in purposeful consumer businesses, will share his unique career path. Jake has the knowledge to identify compatible partners to invest in and stands apart by being authentic. After briefly walking through his career path, he will offer advice on the importance of how really knowing oneself helps create a positive and memorable first impression.  

To help guide you in knowing yourself, we will follow with an exploration of your natural talents with Kristin Sistos, Founder and CEO of Percheron Consulting and Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. Gaining a deeper understanding of your natural talents will help you thrive academically, socially and in your future career. We will explore your unique lens and how it can guide you when evaluating majors and careers. You will receive a link to take the CliftonStrengths assessment in preparation for this workshop, and it is critical that you take the assessment no later than September 5th.
