Upcoming Events

A small spark of an idea has the power to ignite a powerful flame when it’s stoked correctly. At our November “Like a Boss” Coffee Chat we’re talking to three people who took something personal and acted on it in such a way that is now shaping not just their individual lives but also their professional careers.

Join us on Tuesday, November 19 for our next “Like a Boss” Coffee Chat on the topic of “Using Your Voice.” Through their own life paths, each of our panelists recognized a need and took the initiative to be drivers of change in their fields: corporate sustainability, parenting and health & fitness. Now authors, managers and business owners these thought leaders exemplify what it means to seize an opportunity by speaking up and speaking out.

  • Kate Gaertner, owner of Triple Win Advisory and corporate sustainability expert
  • Danielle LeSusa, owner of Danielle LaSusa PhD, LLC and philosopher on what it means to create a human being
  • Bill Righter, managing director at BFit gyms and advocate for inclusivity and economic equality in the fitness industry
