Leadership Breakfast Fall 2023
Freedom Payments presents KTSY’s final Leadership Breakfast of the year. We are rediscovering joy in the workplace. It’s no secret that we’re all facing more challenges than ever before. We’re stretched further than we feel we’re designed to, and our teams are maxed out personally, and professionally. So, how do we continue to show up, and be filled with joy?
Our speakers this fall are Connie Miller, CEO of Credible Advantage, who will be speaking about finding joy in conflict, and Sean Hancock, founder of Recycled Minds Comedy, and corporate trainer, who will speak on finding joy in our purpose.
We want to continue to build a culture of local connection so that you can build relationships with leaders all across the Treasure Valley that encourage growth and community.
