RISING LEADERS - Rising above obstacles
Thu, June 29, 2017, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM PDT
It's not how you start, it's how you finish!
Life may have handed you a rough hand, but the world is filled with countless examples of individuals who began in tough circumstances, only to overcome the odds and become successful.
Rising Leaders is an event designed for successful individuals who emerged from underpriviledged backgrounds, to give back the knowledge, wisdom, and lessons they've acquired, to the next generation of leaders. Through stories, tips, and a Q&A, our panel of speakers will share about the successes and accomplishments, but also the failures and mistakes they've made on their own journeys, with the goal of offering hope, encouragement, and a helping hand to the attendees.
Join us for a night of inspiration as our speakers, who all hail from less than ideal backgrounds, share their stories of going from humble beginings to where they are today.
Each speaker will be very relateable and there will be opportunities for attendants to ask questions.
