Catalyze Career Development for High Achievers Meetups: Strategies of Personal Development in Career and Entrepreneurship Success

Catalyze Meetup

World Chicago Catalyze Alumni group is a group of high achievers, young professionals, who have already demonstrated their skills in various fields. In this highly competitive and fast changing world, there is no time to stand still, and one of the main hallmarks of high achievers is Lifelong learning. This is why we are organising Catalyze Career Development for High Achievers Meetups, a series of 3 meetups to be held on suitable topics so we can grow personally and professionally.

The topic of the second meetup is “Strategies of Personal Development in Career and Entrepreneurship Success ”. Every high achiever strives to do better in the things he does. Personal development is necessary for both individuals seeking successful careers and entrepreneurs. Also, that are prerequisites of startup ecosystem development. Many strategies can be used to boost someone’s career and this meetup will present some of those.

The second meetup will take place on August 31st, 2021 at 5 p.m. (CET) We hereby invite all World Chicago Catalyze Alumni to join us at our first event. There will be an opportunity to to NETWORK, LEARN and GROW.
