WHAT: The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce presents a special leadership forum with speaker Dan Harris, who will present “The Inside Story of a TV Anchor and How I Became 10% Happier.” As the work day gets longer, stress levels are on the rise. More and more of us are one task away from losing it. We may buy self-help books, but don’t read them. Dan Harris cuts through the noise and gets to the heart of the matter. Attendees will discover how to better respond to life’s challenges and get 10% happier.
Before and after the luncheon, Harris will conduct a book signing of his bestselling book 10% HAPPIER: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works.
