Learn How to Create Your Own App
J.M. Moore, Gr8dish App

I want to tell you how I went from being a part-time home depot worker with absolutely no coding or business skills to a mobile developer with over 4 different apps.
I will put you in the driver’s seat as you journey from idea to fully functional mobile application. Along the way, we will navigate through the resources that enabled me and the many pitfalls to avoid.
All the tools to succeed are right in front of us, we just have to learn how to use them. Light breakfast will be served.

Leadership Transformed: Discovering How Leadership Conversations Can Transform Business
Dustin Banister, United Way of Wayne County

Have you ever heard the term ‘leader’ used for the woman or man that clinches the most responsibly in an organization?
Of course you have, right? After all, that is the traditional understanding of a leader!
But, what if……what if being a leader has less to do with titles or responsibilities, and more to do with presence and awareness? …what if being a leader is not about your position or paycheck, but about your encouragement and adaptability? …what if being a leader is not just about organizational size or structure, but more about openness and integrity?
And what if leaders are not born, but developed?
Well, then, perhaps we need a new definition of leadership.
So, why don’t you join us in this important dialogue as we create the space necessary for learning, growth, and a deeper understanding of just what it means to be a leader?
Breakfast will be served.
