Often in life we find ourselves just trying to survive and make it through the day. It's important however, especially as students, to make the time to prepare for and shape our future.

Success starts with having clear vision. In this session, you will learn the meaning and importance of acquiring vision, and how to define and visualize your dreams and goals. You'll leave this inspiring workshop with a sharper picture of what you want, how to get it, and new tools for success.

Don't miss this exciting presentation by Walmart's Jenn Drago Ericksen '11, and a time of interactive discussion and vision creation.


Jenn Drago Ericksen '11
Director, Corporate Communications – Technology

Jenn Drago Ericksen is Director of Corporate Communications for Technology at Walmart. She is responsible for building Walmart's narrative for all things technology and digital transformation at a time when the company is going through a major evolution. Jenn works closely alongside Walmart’s Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Jeremy King (who is also a San Jose State alum!). She is responsible for Jeremy’s executive platform and communications strategy – internally and externally.

Before joining Walmart, Jenn spent two years with Specialized Bicycle Components where she was Chief of Staff to the Founder and CEO, Mike Sinyard.

She prides herself in being a trusted communications advisor who’s passionate about partnering with brilliant technology leaders to tell captivating stories – inside and out.
