For our next Table for 12 dinner, we’ve lined up an exclusive, AAJA members-only event with Angie Lau, Bloomberg Asia’s lead anchor for its award-winning daily morning program relaunched this month as “First Up with Angie Lau“.
Angie will share advice on career development, personal branding, networking and being your own best advocate.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure one of 12 seats or to be put on the waiting list. Please consider yourself committed once you RSVP. If you are a no-show, then you may be stopping a fellow AAJA member from joining. We will all split the bill to treat Lau as our guest.
Next week’s T-12 session follows past guests including New York Times correspondent Chris Buckley and veteran journalist Ching Cheong.
We look forward to seeing you February 19.
