2018: Personal Development Ideas

New Year. New Events. New Connections.

The new year is full of possibilities. We’re in the midst of making resolutions, setting goals, and scheduling activities for 2018. Most likely, these include a new workout routine, a money-saving strategy, and, hopefully, a vacation! From a business perspective, we’re setting goals, discussing performance metrics, and reviewing budgets. And, quite possibly, personal development ideas are popping into your mind. How are you going to grow yourself and your skillsets in 2018?

At TruPath, we have strong ties to economic development and HR. This is due in large part to the nature of our business. We consult with companies looking to locate to Arizona by advising them on local talent. We also help new companies ramp up operations and facilities. And we help existing companies with recurring needs en masse. Not to mention, we help organizations with hard-to-fill placements.

We’ve been partnering with economic development and HR professionals for years and have several suggestions on personal development ideas, in the form of association meetings and events. Through these forums, you can advance your knowledge, establish new relationships, and earn credit towards certifications.

Four New Events to Make New Connections in the New Year:
