Putting previous CAREER experience in CV?

Hi, everyone!

As the title suggests, I wanted to ask you if it was a good idea to put my previous exp. from a different career path.

Now, I know this is not related to finance, but I learned a lot, I did many presentations to different clients and I got a lot of confidence in my leadership and "soft skills", I also developed a lot of work ethic, something that keeps me focus even in college.

So, Is that relevant? Will it help me?

Let me know what you think.
