November Chance Meetings and News: Dr. Ed Brenegar Presents Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative To Ignite Change

November Chance Meetings

Monday, November 5th
5-7 pm @ The Rose (50 W Broadway)

Sometimes all you need is the right connection and a little inspiration. Well, what are you waiting for? Come find both at our free monthly networking event. You never know...

Theme: Dr. Ed Brenegar Presents Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative To Ignite Change

Dr. Ed Brenegar, author, speaker, coach, and  Silicon Couloir supporter, invites you to activate your personal initiative. 

At the November Chance Meeting, we will celebrate the publication of Ed's book, Circle of Impact: Taking Personal Initiative To Ignite Change, a book that details how personal leadership functions in organizations and communities. Ed will share some of the principles that help us to better practice leadership impact and will explain how anyone can develop the personal initiative needed to create real impact both in their own lives and within their organizations.

Running a successful business is full of challenges, especially during times of transition. But when your people are motivated, inspired, and determined to give their very best, you can achieve great things.

Books will be for sale at the event. A portion of every book sold will be donated to the support of Silicon Couloir.
