Greenville, SC [February 6, 2017] – Ten at the Top (TATT) will host the PIQUE, an annual event focusing on the collaboration and connection of young professionals (ages 21-40) in the ten county Upstate. The March 23rd event, to be held at Wofford College in Spartanburg, will feature four workshops, an opportunity to network with Upstate business and community leaders, a panel on diversity in the Upstate, and a networking reception.

Event workshops will include: Entrepreneurship & Alternative Career Paths, Young Professionals to Baby Boomers – The Four Generation Workplace, Rethinking the Executive of the Future, and How to Land a Job You Aren’t “Qualified” For. The personal and professional development portion of the program will wrap up with a panel on diversity in the Upstate titled Breaking Glass Ceilings in the Upstate: Age, Gender, and Diversity.

Immediately following the event a networking reception, sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas, will be held. The reception will feature local food, desserts, and beer.
New for 2017, the reception will also feature a silent auction with a twist. Young professionals will bid for items using volunteer hours, rather than money. Volunteer hours will have to be served at an Upstate nonprofit, providing an opportunity for young professionals to make a big impact in our nonprofit community.

In the spirit of collaboration, the PIQUE brings together existing young professional organizations in the Upstate. Organizations promote the event to members and in return $5 of each ticket sold to a partner organization is given back to help fund their programming and events. 2017 partner young professional organizations include: AFL Young Professionals, Clemson Young Professionals, Connect Young Professionals (Greenwood), Greenville Rotaract, PULSE (Greenville), Spartanburg Young Professionals, Young Professionals of Anderson County, and United Way of the Piedmont Young Leaders.

If you represent a young professional organization and would like to become a partner please contact Tiffany Tate (ttate@tenatthetop.org or 864-283-2313).
The event is being held from 1:15PM until 6:30PM on Thursday, March 23rd at Wofford College (429 N Church Street, Spartanburg, SC 29303). The cost to attend is $26 and space is limited. Register and find more information at www.thepique.org.
