Project Manager, Wiley|Wilson, LL41
I learned a lot about my personal leadership style, and how important it is to deeply care for my co-workers from Leadership Lynchburg. However, my wife just says I got soft.
I serve on the Leadership Council because Leadership Lynchburg jump started my leadership journey, and I still go to my classmates to celebrate good times and talk about tough ones. I want to help other emerging leaders have the same experience and form the same kinds of relationships I did.

Diversity & Inclusion Officer, University of Lynchburg, LL41
Leadership Lynchburg was a great opportunity to network with other area professionals while learning the tenants of leadership in a practical and sustainable manner. The community component is brilliant, and the manner in which members are strategically placed on teams truly helps each individual grow as a leader. It was time well spent.
I have had a tremendous amount of help to achieve the “success” I’ve achieved in my life. Individuals involved with Leadership Lynchburg helped me grow both as a leader and as a professional. I want to see our region thrive, this is an important way to give back to those who aspire to make a difference in this area both personally and professionally.

Serving on the Leadership Council helps to ensure that this opportunity exists for others to benefit from as much as I did. Serving on the Leadership Council also offers me an opportunity to continue my journey in developing as a leader by working alongside and learning from some incredible leaders from all across our dynamic city.
