6 Ways to Rock Your Career Event Rocks!

On October 12th, popular author and speaker Trista Harris joined the Bay Area chapter at the Hub San Francisco for an engaging talk about her book, “How to Become a Nonprofit Rockstar: 50 Ways to Accelerate Your Career.” 

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Trista is Executive Director of the Headwaters Foundation for Justice, author of the blog New Voices of Philanthropy, chair of the EPIP National Advisory Committee and a passionate advocate for next generation issues in philanthropy and nonprofits.

Trista’s presentation was thoughtful, funny and heartfelt as she spoke about the challenges of balancing work and family life, taking advantage of career opportunities you’re not always sure you’re ready for and building a personal brand. Trista had great tips for attendees such as creating personal business cards and scheduling time to network before you even arrive at conferences to help build relationships and create your next opportunity.

There was time for attendees to catch up with colleagues and make new connections at the reception before and after the presentation (as well as have their books signed)! A special thank you to Trista Harris for sharing with us her stories and wisdom.
