"There is no opportunity to develop relationships with corporate execs that equals Lime. To have real conversations with partners who see disabilities as assets and want to connect with Lime Network members, and engage with peers who have similar backgrounds, is an incredible experience."
NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 25, 2018
Lime Connect, its NextGen Junior Board and Ambassadors - and its corporate partners - will host a Fireside Chat and cocktail reception on Monday, May 7, 2018 in Midtown New York City that is designed for upcoming/recent university graduates and professionals - including veterans - who happen to have any type of disability. Goldman Sachs Managing Director and Lime Connect global board member Suzanne Gauron will share how she successfully navigates having a career and living a full life with a disability - and tips for success - in the Fireside Chat titled, “No Limits: Driving Success at Work and in Life."
The engaging conversation will be followed by an intimate cocktail reception with Lime Network members and corporate partners Bloomberg, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Google, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Microsoft, PwC and Unilever, who are always seeking to connect for current and future roles. This is a great opportunity to build relationships, and also learn about new opportunities if you happen to be seeking career advancement.
