Eat, learn, discuss & grow!

Raise your leadership and connect with others in a fun learning environment!

The June Lunch & Learn will be held on June 27 from noon - 1 p.m. at Heartland Regional Medical Center, Classroom 1. The topic will be "Business Born from Passion" with Josh Benitone & Jared Gravatt, entrepreneurs & owners of Crown Brew Coffee.

Do you have a fire that drives you to take risks in your life and business? Understanding and harnessing that passion is the difference between fulfillment and just being a boss. Join Josh and Jared to learn how your passion can manifest into your product, business, vision, staff leadership, and marketing.  

The Marion Chamber of Commerce hosts a Lunch & Learn each month in 2018 as part of the Leadership Marion program, sponsored by Heartland Regional Medical Center.
 
In a brief amount of time, you will receive the best leadership principles, interact with other growing leaders, and discuss how to apply effective practices to your organization.  After each Lunch & Learn, you will walk away with at least one mind changing idea that will create a desire for motivation and self-improvement. This is the perfect professional development opportunity to increase levels of influence and potential in yourself and in the teams you lead.
 
The Lunch and Learn programs will be held on the fourth Wednesday of the month (March 21 and December 19, 2018, class are exceptions) from noon to 1 pm at Heartland Regional Medical Center in Classrooms 1&4.
 
Admission is $15 per Marion Chamber member ($20 for non-Chamber).  Lunch and drinks provided courtesy of Heartland Regional Medical Center.
