The 2019 Annual YAD Business and Professional Networking Brunch will be themed around the Houston food industry and how to stay relevant from a business perspective. James Beard Award-Winning Chef, Chris Shepherd, and CultureMap's food editor, Eric Sandler, will discuss the Houston culinary scene in an open dialogue format. The event is an opportunity for you to connect with professionals from a variety of industries.

As a new addition to this year’s program, you will have the opportunity to network with leaders in the Jewish community who have ‘made it’ in their respective industries. This brunch is a valuable program for young professionals, allowing you to take a step back from your day to day jobs. You’ll have a chance to reflect and ask, ‘What is really important to me? Am I doing what I need to be doing to get where I want to be in one, five, ten years? What changes can I make to improve my career path, and who here can help me achieve those goals?’ So, come ready to learn something new and to put into action the advice you find most helpful!
