Young Leader Meeting
Leadership and the New Future of Work
About This Meeting
DEC Young Leaders met with David Parent, Michigan Managing Principal of Deloitte on November 16, 2021. This meeting was held at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores.
The evening began with a private tour of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House.
Following the tour, David looked back at silver linings and examples of successful leadership during the pandemic. The discussion then focused on the theme of innovation and the future.
“If we work smarter, we should be able to get the same amount of work done, but then also have more time for ourselves.”
His advice to his 25-year-old self is to invest in maintaining relationships that you make early in your career.
A Q&A session followed with YLs asking how, in the virtual world, to connect with team members, find mentors within their organization, and advice on talent attraction.
The first in-person YL meeting since March 2020 concluded with networking.
Many thanks to David and Deloitte for their generosity and for making this meeting possible!
