A champion magnifies what it means to be a leader through hard work, creativity, and integrity. They lead their teams with passion and are not afraid to make bold moves that not only benefit their organizations, but also for the greater good. Breakfast with Champions is your opportunity to network with a number of community leaders that illustrate these qualities. You won’t want to miss your chance to sit down, connect, ask questions, and discover what it takes to be a true champion. This year we are mixing things up and offering three 25-minute sessions with champions and closing with an open networking session – giving your more ways to engage with over 25 community leaders. “Advanced registration is highly recommended for this well-attended event and seats are limited. Sign up by November 1st and be entered into a drawing to have a one-on-one breakfast with one of the Champions.”
