Description (paragraph form)
With an increased pressure on Institutions of Higher Learning to substantiate their course offerings with respect to employability; now more than ever, programs designed to specifically address soft-skills are the only viable way to prepare the student and close the “skills gap” that exists in the job market today.
More and more recent college graduates struggle to gain entry into their field due to what employers claim is a lack of hands on experience, professionalism and business acumen in students coming directly out of college.
Join highly-rated speaker Ann Cross for this interactive and engaging presentation about the benefits of incorporating soft-skills training through experiential learning into the student experience.

The Sparrow Group has visited dozens of campuses in the last five years, and has seen what works, as well as the common mistakes and missed opportunities. This is not a theoretical workshop, but rather a workshop that focuses on practical, tactical programs that you can implement immediately. You’ll hear stories of success, see data that supports outcomes, and leave with tools that you can take back to the campus and use to improve employment outcomes.
