We are excited to be hosting our Annual Chamber Banquet and Membership Meeting on Monday, February 17th with keynote speaker, author, and U.S. Olympian Johnny Quinn. We have planned a dynamic evening with highlights from 2019, announcements and awards for Business of the Year, New Business of the Year, and Citizen of the Year, and plans for our new year ahead.
Johnny Quinn is a noted keynote speaker and leadership trainer for businesses, teams and organizations of all sizes. He is a U.S. Olympian in the sport of bobsled and competed at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Johnny is also a former pro football player spending time with the NFL's Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Johnny has been featured on various media outlets around the world such as: ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, FOX, NBC TIME, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.
CHAMPION MINDSET: "We live in a day of constant change. Whether it is economic, social, technological, or regulatory, if you are not changing and adapting you will be left behind." Johnny clearly lays out a plan to develop a champion mindset giving your organization the ability to adapt to change and come out ahead of the competition."
Join us early for a special Meet and Greet opportunity from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to talk with Johnny and pick up a copy of his book PUSH. We want this to be a great experience for all our businesses, so take advantage of meeting Johnny during this Meet and Greet and during our Social Hour from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Special thanks to the Norton County Community Foundation for making it possible to host this exciting speaker. May Johnny's message and visit inspire Norton area to 'think like a Champion' in everything we do.
