Chicago Gaining Ground: Your Story

Gaining Ground: Your Story


No one likes a braggart! So, what’s the difference between owning your accomplishments and overly tooting your own horn? Women are historically terrible at telling their success stories, which often inhibits their careers.


In today's marketplace it's essential to celebrate your accomplishments and explain your growth through compelling storytelling.


Join us Thursday, January 26 in Chicago for Gaining Ground: Your Story. Created by UP Business Communications, Gaining Ground offers women an opportunity to discover their most powerful, personal communication style and an actionable strategy to advance in the workplace. UP founders, Mary Jo Romeo, leader in the sales and media industry, and Ellie Heyman, highly regarded acting coach, developed this interactive program to prepare you to broadcast your wins without bragging in circumstances ranging from cocktail parties to job interviews.

Energy BBDO, 225 North Michigan Avenue

6:00 pm — 8:00 pm
