Here are summaries of some of our more recent programs.

ENCOREPRENEUR SPEAKERS




Speakers vs Partners
We include a list of our speakers under the "PARTNERS" tab on our website because we often feel that we partner with them on things that we both find important. Some speakers want to tell a story. Others want to inspire their listeners. And some are supportng a cause. 

We choose speakers who we think are inspiring, interesting and who have a message we would like to take to our members. We think of them as partners.

We have hosted more than 60 breakfasts and other programs since Encorepreneur! began, covering topics ranging from baseball to the teachings of Islam. Our speakers have included serial entrepreneurs, NY Times best selling authors, WWII and Viet Nam veterans, politicians, educators, baseball players, first responders, extreme hikers (from 3 different continents), and many other interesting people.

Our more than 60 speakers demonstrate the great diversity in talent, experience and knowledge that exists in the area. 

More importantly, their willingness to share their experiences with us demonstrates - and our "sold out" response to them - demonstrates what an interesting and engaged community we live in.

Our hats are off to the more than 60 encorepreneurs who have shared their stories with us.
