New in 2011, the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce will present a quarterly Professional Women’s Leadership Luncheon Speaker Series. This series is being produced by Pearl Smith, Director of Women’s Programs for the Chamber.
The series kicks off on Tuesday, October 4 at the Holiday Inn Virginia Beach-Norfolk Hotel and Conference Center. The first speaker in the series is Colleen Barrett, Chairman Emerita, former President and Corporate Secretary of Southwest Airlines and co-author of “Lead with LUV,” which she co-authored with Ken Blanchard (“The One Minute Manager”).
In a lively discussion format, WTKR NewsChannel 3 anchor Barbara Ciara, will interview Barrett allowing her to reveal why leading with love is the most powerful way to lead. She'll also discuss how this can help achieve unprecedented business performance. Nearly 300 business and community leaders are expected to be in attendance to hear her message.
A book signing with Barrett will take place before and after the luncheon. Registration begins at 11:30am, with lunch and program beginning at noon. Professionals, both men and women, won’t want to miss Barrett’s universal message.
