This should be a fun, informal panel discussion of about 5 panel speakers. We are currently looking for speakers to be on the panel. If you are interested please let me know by contacting me by email. We are looking for any age range and experience level. Whether you are retired, mid-career, a newly hired professional, or a student, we would welcome your contributions to our panel.
We will have questions prepared to ask the panelists. The idea is to share significant stories of our careers to inspire, educate, and maybe even entertain the audience. I continually hear stories that information professionals share, whether about overcoming challenges, work travel adventures, working with interesting people, humorous anecdotes, technological or procedural insights, and really anything else.
It can be very inspiring for the audience to hear about what it's actually like to work in certain organizations, environments, geographical locations, and types of information industries. We want to have a discussion that shows the many different elements of what it's like to be an information professional. Hearing interesting stories may help audience members to be inspired and create their own interesting stories as they advance in their career.
Please join us to listen to our panel discussion, or participate as a panelist yourself! If you'd like to be a panelist please contact me by email.
Any questions or comments please reach out here or by email.
