Cocktails & Connections: GPS For Your Career: Navigating Corporate Culture
Author, Micro-Business Coach, International Speaker,
Jenny Blake is a bestselling author, micro-business coach and international speaker who helps people move beyond burnout to build sustainable, dynamic careers they love. With two years at a technology start-up as the first employee, over five years at Google on the Training and Career Development teams, and two years of running her own business, Jenny combines her love of technology with her superpower of organizing information to help clients through big transitions — often to launch their own small business.
Jenny created her first website, LifeAfter College, in 2005, then released a book of the same name in 2011 that was featured in Target’s 2012 graduation display. Jenny has been featured on Forbes.com, US News & World Report, Real Simple magazine, and has spoken at several major universities and top companies such as Columbia, TEDxCMU, Google and Best Buy.
Today you can find her at JennyBlake.me, where she explores how to thrive at the intersection of mind, body and business. For fun, Jenny teaches a Geek Yoga class in New York City for entrepreneurs.
