Spotlight Speaker Anne Hilb (she/her) will present Leaders Listen: Active Listening as the Ultimate Superpower in Business + in Life.

In this joyful time together we will:

  • Dive deeply into listening and what makes it so important 
  • Learn a framework for active listening 
  • Practice together in order to build confidence in the skillset

Equality Chamber of Commerce and the Equality Chamber Foundation, in collaboration with TraxMethod, strive to serve its members and the business community by providing educational and informational seminars. Our goal is to gather experts in our community to discuss topics critical to small businesses and organizations. 

We believe it is our responsibility to offer the community an opportunity to hear from experts so that they can make decisions based on the facts and facilitate factually-based discussions. We want to be a conduit through which the community can obtain information, drive discussions, and make their own decisions.

The Rise and Grind Speaker Series allows you to keep up on current events and topics of interest locally and regionally. Business owners, organizational leaders, HR professionals, marketers, and small businesses will find these topics helpful as they are designed to educate and inform about subjects that are relevant to your local business and non-profit community. In addition, business owners and organizational leaders can promote their business before the workday even begins. Also, these breakfasts focus on networking and give attendees the chance to exchange business cards and develop new prospects.
