HBA’s 2020 Career Conversations Program
Vision and Visioning 

Following a very successful series of webinars in 2019 focused on the characters of leadership, HBA’s 2020 Career Conversation series will convene industry leaders and experts to discuss the importance and impact of vision. 

Sessions will be held at noon (EST), on the second Tuesday of the month during the months of May, July, September and October. That time slot best accommodates members spanning the west and east coast of the U.S. and those in Europe. Each session will provide timely, relevant content from a subject matter expert, real-world experiences and perspectives from industry leaders and an engaging virtual Q&A with participants.
