Reimagining Business and Leadership in an Online World

Today’s talent and customers demand engagement. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to adapt to virtual and hybrid service delivery models. In order to keep pace and remain relevant, top leaders must grow and evolve or get left behind. In this timely and informative program, join Rotarian Steve Crandall, CEO of Prolumina (Seattle 4’s longtime A/V and meeting technology partner) and Anna Liotta, CEO of Resultance, Inc. (which develops strategies for optimal employee and client engagement) as they share:
  • The importance of executive presence online
  • The advantages, disadvantages, capabilities, and limitations of technology
  • Turning your multi-generational workforce into one of your greatest competitive advantages 
  • Case studies from the non-profit, corporate, legal, and retail industries
From helping organizations host their first-ever virtual conferences and events, to supporting one of the first jury trials to resume in the country, to assisting a major fashion brand transition to online sales meetings, Anna and Steve will help you understand, identify, and address best practices and core competencies that will engage your employees and customers and drive business.

Rotary Happy Hour on World Mosquito Day

Did you know that August 20th is World Mosquito Day which commemorates the discovery that female mosquitoes are the cause of malaria infection?  Join us for this special Happy Hour when we'll hear from two members as they share their personal experiences on malaria service projects to Africa, learn how to mix the perfect gin & tonic, be entertained with some mosquito jokes, and of course, have time to socialize with fellow members.  For every member who attends, we will purchase a mosquito net to protect a family and help curb the spread of malaria. This is a happy hour where you can truly connect for good - don't miss it!! 

Thursday, September 3rd at 4:00 pm
