The event focuses on connecting young professionals across the Upstate, giving them opportunities to network as well as to hear from experts on topics that are relevant to their working lives, according to a news release.
In this fifth year of Pique, the program will feature three breakout panel sessions along with executive roundtables, a LinkedIn Lounge, and keynote speaker Sallie Holder. The event also includes opportunities for networking, sharing ideas and discussion of future collaboration, the news release said.
During each of three breakout sessions, attendees will have four choices: one of two panel sessions, the executive roundtables, or the LinkedIn Lounge, sponsored by AFL, where they will have an opportunity to have a professional headshot taken.
Three panels are scheduled, each running twice to give attendees an opportunity to hear all panelists. Panel topics include negotiating careers, community engagement and conflict management.
Local author Sallie Holder will be the keynote speaker. Her book, Rock Middle: The Roadmap from Empty Success to True Fulfillment, was released in January. A graduate of Vanderbilt University and the University of South Carolina Law School, Holder previously worked as an attorney at Ogletree Deakins and lives in Greenville.
Registration and networking begin at 1 p.m. at Huguenot Mill and Loft, 101 West Broad St., Greenville, with the event beginning at 2 p.m. The reception will begin at approximately 5:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online.
