“The Academy is developed to enhance, spark, and challenge any diverse leader both personally and professionally. The largest added bonus was the special bonds created within the group.”

“Whomever once said that leaders are simply born that way was misguided. This locally-crafted curriculum explores theoretical and real-life examples that continually challenge and improve the skill set of those who choose to lead their industry, company and/or community organizations.”

communication and how to employ that in our
