When you walk out of the Winning Workshops event at Kimmel Arena on the UNCA campus next Wednesday, May 16th you will feel incredibly INSPIRED and will be ready to face challenges with fresh ideas, newfound confidence, and genuine purpose!

Our three presenters: Bill Early, Jessica Chilton, and Donna Cutting are donating their world-class talents and knowledge to make a difference for YOU and all you touch. And the funniest and wisest emcee in America…our own George Fleming is back by popular demand to make the morning even MORE phenomenal!

When you go back to work on Wednesday afternoon you will have enjoyed one of the best mornings ever! You’ll be ready to tackle the world and be the leader, teammate, parent, and human being you truly want to be!!!

SEIZE THE WOO!!!! Register yourself and your team TODAY!!!!
