March 2021 marks one year since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down much of the things we love to do. At this point, we may be wondering when the pandemic will end and how we can stay positive through these new challenges.
Join us on March 12 for an inspirational program that everyone can relate to – Find Your Patch of Blue: Staying Positive in Hard Times. Guest speaker Linda Dulye, the founder of the DLE and Dulye & Co. organizational consultancy, will recap her career path, openly sharing significant setbacks personally and professionally, and how she overcame them to stay positive and productive.
From witnessing, as a child, the devastating fire that destroyed her parents’ business to losing her job twice by her early thirties to picking up after burglars struck her business in its first year, Linda reveals how she revived her confidence and courage to move forward.
This interactive discussion will be guided by a Journey Line tool, which will be made available to participants to track their own stories and find their patches of blue. True to the Breakfast Club format, breakout sessions will be featured for swapping experiences and making new connections.
This one-hour program begins at 7:00 am ET, and advance registration is required.
