The Evolution 2017 Series of Events will take a deep dive into a leadership topic with a day-long program.  Each event will feature only one speaker focused on developing purposeful leaders.  Leadership teams are encouraged to attend, as  the  subject matter is beneficial for emerging and seasoned business leaders alike.  Also, new in 2017 is the 10 New Leaders project, where JD is paying it forward by selecting, nurturing and growing 10 emerging and entrepreneurial leaders.  Additionally, 50% of all event projects will be donated to the Dame Family Foundation, whose mission focuses on “finding small ways to add large value to others’ lives.”
