Naples has duo of exciting events on the horizon

September 18, 2012 by  

With a couple of prestigious events coming up in the area, Naples residents have plenty to consider over the next couple of weeks.

This Thursday, September 20, will see a kick off reception for the Leadership Collier program at the Von Liebig Art Center. The event, which will celebrate the incoming students and those who have completed the Leadership Collier program, will be catered by Wynn’s Market and will feature a cash bar. Tickets are $25 for this 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm event.

The Leadership Collier program is a nine-month program designed to educate business leaders. Those who graduate are expected to advance the community of Collier County in some way.

On October 9, the ‘Chamber Chicks’ luncheon and fashion show, a fundraiser for the Leadership Collier Foundation, will take place at Truluck’s from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. This is a presentation of the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce and will feature female members of the chamber modeling clothes from various Naples boutiques and stores. Tickets are $65 and sponsorships are also available. For more information call 239-262-6376.

Both of these events will be excellent networking opportunities for businesspeople from Naples. Those attending will more than likely be placing a new business card printing order in advance and might also want to practice or develop an elevator speech before attending. A 30-60 second blurb which describes the person and their business and what they can do for their business peers, an elevator speech is all the more effective with a newly printed business card in hand.
