Jim Weber, Leading with Purpose in a Dynamic World

Brooks CEO Jim Weber will bring a lifetime of leadership experience in ever-changing business climates to the table as he presents to Seattle Rotary about leading with meaning. Jim Weber joined Brooks as CEO in 2001 and is credited for the Seattle-based company’s aggressive turnaround story, focusing the team solely on delivering personally inspiring products and experiences that keep people running.

Jim received a master’s of business administration degree with high distinction from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Author of the book Running with Purpose: How Brooks Outpaced Goliath Competitors to Lead the Pack (available for purchase by clicking HERE), he currently serves on the boards of directors for Brooks and Tuck. 


Effective Partnership in Global Health

Wednesday, July 13
Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce
Doors at 2:00 PM

We are honored to host Rotary International’s first female President Jennifer Jones and CEO John Hewko to Seattle in July. Rotary International has a long history in supporting global health in low and middle income countries. They have been instrumental in the fight to eradicate polio for the past 30 years. More recently, The Rotary Foundation awarded $2 million to Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia, a Disease Prevention and Treatment program led by Rotary clubs in the U.S. and Zambia that is using the grant to build more capacity over the next three to five years to protect 1.2 million people in Zambia from the devastating effects of malaria. Partners in this program include the Gates Foundation and World Vision U.S. who are each co-investing another $2 million to the program, as well as PATH and Malaria Partners International. Join us on July 13 to learn about effective partnerships to improve global health outcomes around the world.
