November 2 @ 5:30 pm - November 9 @ 7:00 pm

Our Early Supper Salons provide Diamond Members the opportunity to get to know other members in an intimate and compelling environment, introducing a thought leader to the group to stimulate conversation.

For our November gathering we are delighted to have Mark Mark Mohammadpour, APR as our thought leader. Mark will share his story as well as share some knowledge from his career path and time spent helping executives with health, wellness and resilience.
