    Please join us for our April lunch meeting! 

    You may believe that courage only comes in the grandiose acts of valor that make up heroes and history.  The truth is it takes a great deal of courage to lead people in life and work.  Daily courageous interactions culminate to define you and others as leaders.  In this presentation I will show you the effects of small acts of courage, how you can become a courageous leader and how to inspire courage in those around you.


    Meet your presenter: 

    With over 12 years of experience in global business leadership, the US Army and consulting, Rebecca Bratton brings charismatic and informative presentations to worldwide audiences of all sizes.  While working with a wide range of industries, Rebecca has developed a deep knowledge of leadership, practicing professional nobility, communication and safety management.  Her passion in working with people, whether its one-on-one or in large group settings, is evident by the enthusiasm she brings to any topic.
