“We are pleased to be able to present this world-class leadership development event here in our local community,” said Lynn Williams, chairman of the Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce. “We encourage business, civic and community organizations to take advantage of this opportunity for a thoughtful, yet fast-paced day of leadership inspiration and training.”
“It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said Paul Urbanowki, senior manager at AT&T. “But it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the topic and really shows you how to lead in life.”
This year’s program will focus on the power of choice. The diverse group of internationally-acclaimed authors, leadership experts and practitioners will share insights to help leaders empower and equip others at work, at home and in the community through his or her choices.
