BLAINESWORLD #814, Section 12B (NC)

(1) On the morning of Wednesday, May 16, 2012 we will help you move to the next level in your breakthroughs with a brand new Lessons in Leadership “Winning Workshops” event. Again, our friends at UNC-Asheville are making the Kimmel Arena facility available to us (along with the arena itself, there are some amazing rooms available for workshops and break-out sessions), and the organizing team are planning to get things rolling at 8:30am until 11:30am.

This will be a FANTASTIC, engaging, and exciting event that will leave you at level 10 energy to tackle even the toughest challenges. Winning Workshops will present three dynamic presentations that will help you breakthrough in key areas to your success:

– Breakthroughs in RELATIONSHIPS – both personal and professional.
– Breakthroughs in dealing with CHANGE
– Breakthroughs in PERSONAL ENERGY

These will be fast-paced, participative sessions led by three of the most vibrant and talented speakers and teachers in Western North Carolina. PLUS, the one and only George Fleming will be back by overwhelming popular demand to emcee the morning.

George’s unmatched gift for mixing humor with powerful learning points will elevate the Winning Workshops event to the top!

This kind of event typically costs at least $100 per person. But in the unstoppable spirit of Lessons in Leadership, your cost is once again only $20 to register! This is definitely an event you’ll want to share with your entire team! And, as always, all the proceeds will be donated to local WNC charities.

So, why not go ahead and click here to register yourself and your team now!
