Guest Speakers

Every session begins by featuring a guest speaker from the chapter’s local community. Guest speakers come from across the professional spectrum, including doctors, CEOs, various government positions, public servants, and more. Each speaker discusses his or her personal experience as a teenager, and their journey to leadership, as it relates to the value explored in that Pillar. Guest speakers provide personal, real life examples which are relevant to the Pillar, and open the floor for Q&A, giving Fellows the opportunity to truly understand how leaders from all professions use their positions to make a difference.
