                                      Leadership Luncheon - Grand Ballroom

What drives women to be strong leaders? Most know that high-demanding positions mean nothing if they can't influence others to believe in their mission. Influencing your employees and co-workers to be team players, to be innovative in their roles, and to take ownership of their projects are just some of the secrets to effective leadership.

These five local women will share leadership styles, give us insight about how they influence others, and offer tips and real-life takeaways that can help with your leadership development.
