OPIC:(Forget a Mentor) Find a Sponsor. Who's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor. Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board - but they're not your ticket to the top. If you're interested in fast-tracking your career, what you need is a sponsor - a senior-level champion who believes in your potential and is willing to advocate for that next raise or promotion. At this event, economist and thought leader Sylvia Ann Hewlett will demonstrate why sponsors are your proven link to success. Mixing solid data with vivid real-life narratives, Hewlett will reveal the "two-way street" that makes sponsorship such a strong and mutually beneficial alliance. Whether you're looking to lead a firm, company or community or fulfill other life goals, Hewlett will teach you how to forge the relationships that truly have the power to deliver you to your destination.
