Our Speaker - Dwight L. Johnson

"Leadership comes with a high price tag for many. But for those who know its costs and prepare for its challenges, the rewards can be great. We invite you to experience the powerful stories and wisdom of legendary leaders. Some learned their lessons the hard way as they faced business crises, family stress and moral failure. By embracing faith, humility and transparency, all emerged from their struggles as stronger, more resilient leaders. You can as well."
