It has been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down many of the things we love to do. Rise through positivity at the next DLE Breakfast Club.
An inspirational program awaits on March 12 at the DLE program: Find Your Patch of Blue: Staying Positive in Hard Times with guest speaker Linda Dulye, the founder of the DLE and Dulye & Co. organizational consultancy.
Linda will recap her career path, openly sharing significant personal and professional setbacks 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.
Attend and learn:
This interactive discussion will be guided by a Journey Line, a professional development tool that 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.
