On Thursday, January 5, students from the Senior class attended a Best Practice Business Workshop series at Flint Hill’s Upper School Campus. A similar workshop series will be provided to Eleventh Grade students in the spring. The workshop was conducted to prepare students and give them a sampling of what they will encounter in the not-too-distant future. Topics covered were: “Interviewing: The Art, Science, and Practice;” “Correspondence: Writing the Right Way;” “Resumes That Stand Out;” and “Connecting — Realizing Your Network.”
Experienced business professionals gave the presentations and were available for questions after each workshop. “Our panel brought with them corporate insight, experience, and an understanding of unique opportunities that allowed them to customize the presentations directly to our students,” said Upper School Dean of Students Lisa Williams. The presenters included: Sylvia Bernardini, co-founder and principal consultant at Strategic Results Consulting, LLC; Dr. Andy Cohen, professor of management at George Washington University; Patsy Mangas, founder/president of She Rocks the World; Ben Ness, capture manager with Buchanan & Edwards; Kristen Shiveley, president of Core Connections; and Liza Wright, co-founder and managing partner at Lochlin Partners.
