Watch Our Virtual Event with Flexport's Leaders
This June 2020, PowerToFly partnered with Flexport, the first digitized operating system for global trade, to present a virtual event focused on a timely topic: career progressions and pivots.
During our virtual event with Flexport's Head of Learning & Development and two employees who pivoted careers we discussed inspiring your career search and gaining the tools to get where you're going. Flexport also led our attendees through an illuminating activity where you planned your own retirement party followed by breakout discussions.
Speakers from Flexport included:
- Sarah Gehrki, Director, People Programs and Chief of Staff to Head of People
- Christina Cook, Business Intelligence Analyst
- Lauren Fernandez, Head of Learning and Development

Farnaz Azmoodeh used to dislike running. She was really, truly, actively not interested.
But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz.
