Professional Development - Beans, Brains, and Things

Vanessa Lewis presented on building better teams for Sept 2023!

Our Beans, Brains, and Things events evolved out of a need for professional development opportunities on a budget.

These events are held every few months and feature internal and external subject matter experts on a range of topics including health and wellness to productivity and time management.

The history of the name comes from the inexpensive ingredient (beans), the lunchtime schedule for the events, and the myriad of topics we cover ("things").
