ET is going to light a fire under some people’s cans and get them moving! People would be CRAZY to miss this! The others listed are great too. This event is GOLD!!!"

Our second event was also a packed house as Debra Searle talked about her amazing journey rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic - alone - and how "choosing her attitude" got her through it. Daniel Pink, Tyler Perry, Carly Fiorina, and John Maxwell also gave great insight on "The Art of the Shift".

2017 Speakers and Event

On October 6, 2017 the Chamber held its first viewing of Live2Lead. We had planned to bring the program to Livingston Parish in 2016, but our plans were thwarted, like many of yours. We held a focus group of about 20 people to view the program privately. The overwhelming response - "You have to bring this to our Chamber, Businesses and Parish!"  So we did.  We had over 200 register for the event and they left the event getting way more out of it than they knew. Not knowing what to expect, but appreciating the names and sponsors behind the event, attendees were overwhelmingly excited and enthused by what they had learned that day. Speakers were John Maxwell, Dave Ramsey, Cheryl Bachelder, former CEO of Popeye's, and Warrick Dunn.

2016 Speakers and presenters....
The John Maxwell Experience with Simon Sinek, John Maxwell, Dan Cathy CEO - Chick Fil A and others share leadership insights, professional development and, most important, personal growth. Attendees leave with clear plans for their development.
