Worker Speaker Series

19 Nov 2017 - 30 Oct 2017 | 10:45 am - 11:30 am
Place : LOTI Christy Room
Working is the theme of an ongoing speaker series inspired by the Studs Terkel book of that name in which “people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do.” Many people within our congregation are engaged in fascinating work and this series gives us an opportunity to learn more about what they do.
The next segment of the series will feature Jennifer Cook. Jennifer currently works in Strategic Operations in Innovation, Research & Development for United Health Group where she consults on organizational effectiveness and creates and facilitates learning and development experiences focused on business optimization, innovation and change management. Her past experiences include working as a 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teacher in the Minnetonka Public Schools, being a startup co-founder of Taylor & Fran (a clothing design company), and working as an organizational effectiveness leader at Target Corporation.
Her talk will take place after a brief coffee break following the Sunday morning service. Those who are interested will be invited to take their coffee/tea into the Christy Room for about 45 minutes. The first 15-20 minutes will be an informal talk by Jennifer about her work…leaving the remaining time for questions from┬áthose in attendance.
