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
Flexport is the first digitized operating system for global trade. They have a rare business model that not only satisfies the global trade market but grows it. Over the past two years, Flexport has more than tripled its headcount and expanded its worldwide presence to 14+ offices and warehouses. While scaling rapidly, they've developed critical employee learning and development programs. Those involved in these initiatives will work with you to reassess your priorities and grow your own career, no matter the industry.
