Spark 2020: Grit to Great

Spark 2020 is a half-day leadership symposium on innovation and disruption. Learn to:

  • “Flip” your mindset and look at issues and our community in a whole new light.
  • “Spark” insights and new ideas through this new lens.
  • “Leap” into action and overcome the inertia of uncertainty.
  • “Team” up and collaborate effectively.

Get out of your comfort zone, be curious, and start innovating.
