Sandra Whitehead - Senior Manager - IT Governance

In an industry that is ever-changing and lives that are super busy, it’s often hard to figure out what learning to invest in and how. Sandra’s continuous learning spree offers some great insights into this topic. Although she had a non-traditional “late start”, she’s completed a degree, several courses, a variety of certifications, and is now busy with another degree. More importantly she engaged in unconventional approaches to learning in a more practical sense. She has a few tricks up her sleeve that made this happen and will share these insights with you
