YBM Leadership Alliance hosts regular Leadership Luncheons where we bring our high school leaders together with business and community leaders to network, learn from each other, and hear personal words of encouragement and success from some of Charlotte’s most successful business leaders.
The Leadership Luncheon series represents another component of the new reality that YBM seeks to develop for young leaders. The small group (20) luncheon format provides an opportunity for our young leaders and business professionals to network and learn from business and community experts.
The Leadership Luncheon will be held at Dressler's Restaurant -- 1100 Metropolitan Ave, Charlotte, NC 28204
