"Creativity is the new currency, so, are you credited with new thoughts or overdrawn in old thinking?"
- Onyi Anyado, Global Leadership Speaker & Corporate Trainer


Eleven years ago, Wendy Enelow the visionary who founded Career Thought Leaders  launched an event called "Global Career Brainstorming Day."

Career services providers have been coming together every year since to discuss trends in our industry in what is now Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next.

This year, we are bringing you an enhanced, bite-sized content version with experts from around the globe speaking on our 6 Megatrends. 

I can't wait to connect with peers virtually and share strategies to help clients during this challenging time so we can all be that much better in providing services today and in the future.

As always, I hope you'll use the content in this newsletter to share resources with your clients, populate your social media, or inspire an article.

If you have any suggestions or questions, please reach out to me at any time!
