Event Details

Leadership is the one thing that knows no boundaries.  It doesn't care about age, ethnicity, economic background, or even gender.  You don't have to wait for the title, keys or next promotion to be a leader.  It is about building your influence in your home, your workplace and your community in a way that makes a positive impact.  Whether you are 8 or 80, you can grow your leadership skills and make a difference starting now!

With unemployment at an all-time low, it is essential that you are attracting and retaining key talent by supporting a growth environment.  This starts with providing opportunities for your team to show up at their best.

During this event, you will:

Learn from some of the worlds top experts on leadership, workplace performance, communication, and culture, as well as some of our local experts.

Network with top talent in the Cedar Valley.

Explore the future of leadership in the Cedar Valley.

Get inspired and motivated to accomplish great things in your business.

Be equipped to develop your team and retain your top talent.

Gain new tools to take back that you can easily and immediately implement with your team to boost your results.

Here is what a few of the attendees in October had to say:


"Making an investment in other people is like a business.  When you put stock into something or you put an investment into other people, you get that in return"

"It isn't a matter of what profession you're in, or even if you're a boss or you're an employee, everybody has something to learn in order to help them become more successful and to help them become a leader and help other people become leaders and achieve their goals."

 "It opened my eyes to what type of leader that I wanna try to become, both professionally in my job and also even volunteer at my church or at home."


This event will inspire your team to see themselves and each other in a whole new light.  

Being a leader isn't about being in charge, it is about taking care of those in your charge.  You have a responsibility to those in your community to bring the best out of your team by equipping them for success!
