Speed Networking Event Makes For Fast Learners

We held our first speed networking event on Oct. 12, and it was a fast success. Hosted by UPC Insurance, the event brought six professionals from the company to Tallahassee to share expertise about jobs, career paths and insider tips to launch an insurance profession. It was lively, engaging and a great way to learn about UPC, which was recently named by Fortune magazine as the 38th fastest-growing company in the world. Thanks to UPC for sponsoring the meal afterwards and for sharing their talent!
