Using personal successes and tragedies, Brett will share lessons he learned that you can apply to your path of success, whether new to the field or transitioning from one level to the next. From mistakes, general advice, and tips on forensic analysis, Brett will be an open book to share some of the great and the not-so-great aspects of our chosen profession, including some of the best words of advice that you can put to use in less than two minutes after the presentation.
