What is Impact Leadership Conference?

In response to the request of community members, business leaders and Leadership Visalia alumni, the Visalia Chamber of Commerce will host the first annual Impact Leadership Conference presented by the Groppetti Automotive Family on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at the Visalia Convention Center. For the last three decades the Leadership Visalia program has continued to grow and help build the next generation of leaders in Visalia. Because of the success of this program and other programs including the Visalia Young Professionals Network and the Emerge Entrepreneurship program, the Chamber is taking the next steps to ensure that that there are opportunities to participate in quality leadership and workforce training for business owners and employees in the Central Valley. Cultivating business and community leaders by providing quality continuing education, Impact Leadership Conference will provide opportunities for learning that focus on workplace skills, personal growth and community activism.  

The Impact Leadership Conference will feature morning and afternoon nationally recognized keynote speakers as well as breakout sessions presented by local industry experts and community leaders.

For company leaders and executives, the conference will provide the opportunity to refresh skills and talk about the latest and greatest in leadership trends. For the creators and agents of change within a business, this conference will connect you to other entrepreneurs and changemakers, while providing insights to innovation and creative energy. For the new start-up businesses, this conference will help you spread your brand and provide a valuable networking opportunity to learn about trends and hear from potential customers. For those looking to advance their careers, there will be opportunities to meet employers from all over the Central Valley.

Leaders should always be learning.  After 30 years of training leaders, the Chamber listened and developed a powerful day where leaders, at all levels, can gather and grow.  Whether someone is new to their career or a community pillar, Impact will help develop leadership skills at a deeper level.
