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.
Business Analyst, Genworth, LL40
I was a recent transplant to the Lynchburg community when I went through Leadership Lynchburg and was looking for ways to connect with the community. Leadership Lynchburg provided me that opportunity and connected me with leaders outside of my organization. I made connections with people in LL40 that I still have to this day.
I serve on the board because I like being connected to the wonderful work that leaders in our area are doing. One of my favorite things is to listen to the projects that the current Flagship program are doing. It is amazing to see what they can accomplish in just 9 short months.

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.
