“Lessons from Leaders, a series of
contemporary speakers at Five Points Washington,” will launch its
inaugural speech in spring 2010. The series will be presented by the
Washington Area Community Center. The vision of the series is to
bring up to two speakers each year to speak in the 1,000-seat
Caterpillar Performing Arts Center at Five Points Washington.
Speakers will be encouraged to talk about what leadership means to them, lessons they have learned, and people and events that have shaped their lives. The WACC hopes to host a diverse group of dynamic speakers who have made a difference in their chosen fields and whose leadership philosophies can be applied to the lives of local audiences. Leaders will be sought from all walks of life — business, public service, athletics, education and more.
