About this event

Creating a Better Leadership Culture

For any organization to achieve a great deal of success, its leaders have to perform at such high levels. Fortunately, the rise of technology and the internet in the 21st century has paved the way for great leaders to connect instantaneously, thus allowing them to learn from each others' successes and failures. How should nonprofits approach leadership development? Join us as we sit down with industry leaders and discuss some strategies on how to take your leadership team to the next level!
