Webinar: The Mid-Career Checkup with Monique Valcour
Online
Thursday 14 November, 6.30-7.30pm

In this webinar, Harvard Business Review contributor and management professor, Monique Valcour, will show how a mid-career checkup allows professionals to take stock of where they are, clarify what's important for the next phase of their career, and develop strategies to get them there.
