Trenton Lion’s Leadership Seminar

Trenton Lions Club 77 Campbell St, Trenton

An exciting event is happening at the Trenton Lions Club on December 9th! The club is holding a leadership symposium that will be led by two authors and experts in the field. Rick Lash and Bryan Davis work together at Korn Ferry, delivering executive coaching and leadership development sessions. They worked independently with Fortune 500 companies, and both have recently authored books. They have agreed to conduct a session that highlights their experience in working with senior leaders and then jointly deliver a seminar on the critical aspects of what makes for effective leadership. This unique opportunity will be offered only once. Space is limited so sign up early. A brochure is attached to this email to tell you more and how to reserve your space. Please give me a call if you want more information. Part of the funds from this seminar will go towards continued construction of an all-inclusive playground at Centennial Park. We would appreciate it if you would forward this off to others in the community that might also be interested in it. Please contact Mike Seymour at [email protected] or Barry Munro at [email protected] for additional information.
