Deloitte to Host Business Seminar for Military Service Members; Christie Smith Comments


Deloitte is hosting a three-day seminar at Deloitte University in Westlake, Texas designed to help military service members refocus their military skills into becoming entrepreneurs.

Deloitte said that 50 military men and women have signed up for the Career Opportunity Redefinition & Exploration Leadership Program scheduled from Nov. 14 to 16, the company announced Monday.

“Although significant resources are available to aid military members in the transition to civilian life, most focus on finding and securing employment,” said Christie Smith, managing principal of Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion.

“Our program aims to better equip them by providing business insights to help them align their strengths, experiences and aspirations with the requirements of the marketplace,” she added.

The seminar will focus on developing a personal brand, building a professional network, effective communication, understanding corporate functions and industries and adjusting to a corporate culture.

A panel of business leaders will lead the seminar and offer participants perspectives on maximizing their military experience during a job interview.

“Through CORE and other signature programs, Deloitte is implementing an integrated, comprehensive approach to our military and veteran commitment,” said Kelvin Womack, managing principal of diversity at Deloitte LLP.
