Spark: An EDS Professional Development Program
Spark is an educational program created for talented individuals from manufacturers, manufacturers representatives and distributors in the electronic components industry. Participating in Spark benefits everyone: you, your company, EDS and the electronic components industry. Spark 2021 was held virtually this year over a 5‑week period, 4 hours per week. Moving forward, it will be held at the EDS Leadership Summit in Las Vegas in May.
Aimed at educating and developing our industry’s next generation of professionals, Spark includes:
- An introduction to the electronics components industry
- Industry experts sharing knowledge of topics, current events and future outlooks in electronic components
- Interactive workshops bringing awareness to the impact of personal brands and individual development
- Opportunities to interact with peers and industry leaders to increase your network
For $500/attendee, your employee will gain access to these live sessions and discussions with industry leaders.
