“The Talent Puzzle: Maximizing Individual Potential”

Keynote Speaker: Chris Wallace, General Manager of

Memphis Grizzlies

 Black mba

As companies have transitioned to do more with less, it is imperative that organizational leaders empower each piece of the puzzle to maximize his or her potential to ultimately shape the vision and future success of that organization. Assembling talent with variations in backgrounds, skills, intellectual capital and diversity in thinking is critical for the sustained success of an organization, especially when the most minor pieces may be profound in achieving the picture of success that most leaders envision is possible.

Regardless of what type of mission or strategic vision an organization may possess, the outcome of success may simply be determined by how it maximizes individual potential to empower the theme that collectively we are greater than the sum of our parts.

We cordially invite you to join us for a powerful discourse on the magnitude of education, strategic leadership and diversity in intellectual capital to propel organizations forward.

Our Visionaries Symposium evolves from the roots of our Diversity Breakfast Series. During this reception, we will expound on education, diversity, and strategic leadership and why they are so imperative for the success of our businesses and community.  Our goal is to not only address how diversity and education are essential for an organization’s economic sustainability and prosperity; but to also underscore the immeasurable significance of leadership and diversifying what we perceive can be accomplished.
