Guest Speaker Series 2022

The Guest Speaker series is a knowledge sharing and career guidance platform that gently allows children and their families to understand the different paths available. We invite the best from all industries and practices and their stories reflect the breadth and depth of their decisions, and sometimes the sacrifices involved.
