Distinguished Speaker Dinner Series, ‘Finding the courage to “trust your own instincts” when making career decisions’ – May 6, 2015 with Kathryn McQuade
On May 6, 2015, Kathryn McQuade, a Transportation Executive with over 30 years of experience working for Railways across North America addressed the dinner audience on the topic of:
Finding the courage to “trust your own instincts” when making career decisions
Everywhere you turn there is always someone that wants to give you career advice…blogs, websites, magazine articles, books and let’s not forget friends, colleagues and family. Everyone seems to know what’s best for you, but you. Often people listen to others ignoring their own intuition. Kathryn will share two decisions where “trusting her gut” rather than listening to others changed her career trajectory.
Kathryn is a Transportation Executive with over 30 years of experience working for Railways across North America.
