Tomorrow is the Final L.E.A.D. Conversation

LEADTomorrow, Wednesday, April 16, 2014  is the FINAL L.E.A.D. Conversation!
These conversations are set up around some of TedX’s most popular presentations. At the beginning of the Conversation, we will watch a TedX presentation and then, as a large group, have some conversation about the video. Then we will break out into smaller groups to have more in depth conversation with faculty/staff facilitators.

You won’t want to miss this! For this week’s topic, we will be showing and discussing David McGhee’s “The 16th Letter”. If you’d like, please feel free to watch the video in advance! (

There will be pizza, pop and some small gifts raffled off throughout the event.

Make sure you join us for this last Conversation! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Brian D. Proffer by email at, or by phone at 313.927.1472
