After you've wrapped up your last conference session for the day, reward yourself by making your way to Union Station Brewery just a short walk from the convention center. Union Station Brewery, a former train station turned brewery, is a gem in the heart of downtown Providence where they brew their own crafts beers on-site.

You'll have a chance to mingle with the same faces you saw throughout the day in your conference rooms.

Learn about the behaviors that may be preventing you from achieving the success you deserve. Explore the Imposter Syndrome and see how it can stop you from reaching your goals. Discover ways that your communication style affects your professional life. Join Leslie Shiner, a respected expert in the construction industry, in this exciting session where she shares how she has created a business, built her reputation, and made profit by working in a man’s world.
