For our first Parlay From Away of the year, we’re bringing you an event to strengthen the skills you need to come out strong in 2022, not only in the work world, but in your relationships, your experiences, and your passions.

Join us as we welcome Roberta Riga, an executive coach with over 25 years of experience in leadership development. Her point of emphasis is on authentic self-discovery, because the better you know yourself, the more effective you will be at whatever you’re trying to tackle. She’ll walk us through the art of building confidence through mindset conditioning and emotional intelligence – and couldn’t we all use a little more of that? Whether you are starting from a strong base and want to hone your skills, or feeling like you are starting from scratch, Roberta will help you grow to the next level.

Let’s not only come back ‘bigger and better’ this year but with more empathy than ever before.
