Jun 6 2017 - 5:00pm

Lynette Crane, Certified Life Coach and nationally-acclaimed speaker, addresses the challenge introverts face in gaining visibility, respect for their ideas, and leadership roles in an extrovert culture. She will discuss how she partners with smart organizations to unlock the revenue-boosting potential of these “quietly brilliant” subject matter experts while helping introverts thrive in our extrovert world – without becoming extroverts.

Third Thursday: Hello Summer

Date of Event: 
May 18 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

This is a last-minute event for this Thursday at MIA. It's open to the public but it might be fun to get a group of us Smith alums there. And did I mention there'll be food trucks?

We'll meet up just in the front before you go in the doors. There's enough room there.

From the organizers:

Tons of work is going into making this free, fun event extra special for all of you with live music sponsored by The Current, arts, activities, food trucks and much more in store. Plus you can explore the museum - one of the world's best - for the first or 100th time.
