Initiative is the Key to Success

Initiative is the Key to Success

A forward-thinking college student decides to reach out to local business professionals to organize an in-person Q&A panel for fellow students and entrepreneurs. Aili Vaananen called several successful businesspeople and assembled a great panel who shared their knowledge and recommendations.

The event was a success! Dozens of attendees soaked in the guidance and asked serious questions regarding ways they can succeed and thrive as professionals. I was honored to be among the esteemed panelists that included Sherry Chang, Will Ferrier, Ray Bryant, Vitaliy Panych, and John Whitman who provided such good insights and experiences.


This type of event is something that every community should pull together to help the next generation of professionals.


A special call-out to the cybersecurity students who were in attendance! I hope you found the discussion enlightening!
