State Chamber Update
Webster’s Dictionary defines leadership as:
- An office or position of a leader
- The capacity to lead
- The act or instance of leading
One of my favorite programs here at the Delaware State Chamber is our Chamber Leadership breakfasts. These events highlight the journey our featured speaker has experienced and the lessons he or she learned along the way. At each of these I found an interesting quote, a key insight or relatable event that made me think differently about how I approach my work.
Tomorrow we turn the calendar to October, a month when we are hosting two leadership breakfast events. The first is Wednesday, October 9 with former FBI Director and Judge Louis Freeh. Judge Freeh has certainly seen plenty during his career in New York and Washington, and the stories he’ll share will be compelling.
Later in the month, on October 30
th, we’ll be treated to Delaware political stories from former legislator turned lobbyist Bob Byrd. Bob played an active role in much of what has gone on in Delaware for decades, and his stories should not be missed.
While both will share stories, I’m sure they’ll impart some interesting leadership insights – things that worked and things that didn’t work. I hope you’ll attend and enjoy these as much as I do.
