Join us for a night of inspiration and secrets shared by successful business leaders that turned their passions into successful careers! Helping Young Professionals Excel (HYPE) & The Salem Chamber of Commerce are excited to be hosting our 2nd Annual Big Speaker Event!
Dr. Ivan Misner
Founder and CEO of Business Networking International (BNI), called the "Father of Modern Networking" by CNN and the "Networking Guru" by Entrepreneur magazine. Dr. Ivan Misner is a world-class speaker with expertise in networking and business development. He started BNI when he was only 27 years old! BNI has grown to include 145,000 members worldwide and created over 3 billion dollars in business referrals just last year!
He turned his passion for food into a business plan during his entrepreneurship class in college. His success and later sale of Joseph's Gourmet Pasta and Sauces, to Nestle, has given him the opportunity to develop his dream of the Tuscan Villa in Salem, NH, which now includes the Tuscan Kitchen and Tuscan Market.
Back again as our host for the evening! Al is the Publisher of the Eagle Tribune, Leadership Speaker, Blogger, and a ventriloquist in his free time. Al has a passion for learning and developing leadership skills from the best leaders in the world!
