Lunch Speaker Series: Wings for Kids Presents – Bea Wray

November 8 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join Wings for Kids — Charleston’s only organization with a 25-year track record of teaching social emotional learning to at-risk kids — and CLS for a lunchtime lecture with Bea Wray, author of the powerful, heartfelt guide, What an MBA Taught Me… But My Kids Made Me Learn.
When Bea Wray returned to the corporate world after six years as a full-time mom, she worried “What relevant skills can I bring to the company table?” But, as her career took off, she recognized her interpersonal skills and expertise are what made her soar. Great business schools know that connection, more than curriculum, shapes great leaders. Every aspect of the experience intentionally maximizes relationship building. What an MBA Taught Me…But My Kids Made Me Learn is a sometimes hilarious, other times harrowing journey through Harvard Business School, twenty years of business experience, and the most important academy of all: parenting.
Perhaps family time can be a breakthrough, rather than a break from professional advancement. She discovered “soft” skills are actually pretty hard…but they can be mastered. And, as kids demonstrate, we learn best when having fun!
Please join us for an engaging lecture with Bea and enjoy a reception and book signing immediately following the event.

This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required. To RSVP, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
