Something I've Learned Since Graduating:

The ability to facilitate and lead large-crowd meetings is a skill that I picked up early in my career. Sending out agendas in advance, taking meeting minutes, and sending out recaps to stakeholders. ​​

OU gave me a great preview of how to be organized in this skill, but adjusting to my company’s “norm” of meeting format was something I had to pick up on.
