Luncheon Program:

Creating Champions of Change through a Culture of Civility

The world is changing at a rapid rate. Adapting to change is no longer an option, it is a necessity. Through the power of storytelling and contemporary leadership principles, Scott's insightful presentation creates awareness that is crucial in today's rapidly changing world. The message inspires a call for more agility, respect, kindness and responsibility so that we may collectively create a more civil culture within our workplace, our community and in life. The CHAMPIONS PROGRAM creates the groundwork for any level of leadership to courageously step into an influential position of power with both grace and gravitas.
