BOLD Workshops

To continue the education, we bring back the BOLD Workshops, derived from the BOLD Speaker Series event. Two weeks from the continuing education course, the same speaker will present a workshop, very hands-on, non-networking workshop to help you apply what you learned at the Speaker Series to your business. These workshops are held only in person at Dallas College Garland Center Conference Room A from 8 - 9 a.m. The Workshop has limited seating. If you are interested in applying your new knowledge to your business, please reach out to Andrea Hernandez to reserve your seat.
