“We’re so excited to welcome Nancy Lyons as our keynote speaker!” says Connect Marquette Board President, Shannon Whitehouse. “We just read her latest book Work Like a Boss: A kick-in-the-pants Guide to Finding (and Using) your Power at Work, in our Connect Marquette book club, and it was very well received. If you aren’t familiar with the book yet, I highly recommend getting a copy and reading it before the event.”
