Best-Selling Business Leadership Author to Speak at Business Owners Speaker Series April 22


Best-selling business leadership author Angie Morgan will be the featured speaker at the Business Owners Speaker Series (BOSS) Tuesday, April 22 in Traverse City. The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Hagerty Center, 715 E. Front Street.


Morgan is the founder of Lead Star, a leadership development consulting firm, and the best-selling author of the business book “Leading from the Front.” Morgan has experience as a professional speaker, executive coach, and curriculum designer for leading companies and organizations around the globe including Facebook, Google, ESPN, and Best Buy. She helps clients translate leadership theory into actions that deliver results and has appeared as a guest on FOX, CNN, and MSNBC. Morgan learned how to lead during her time as a Marine Corps officer and devotes time today as a Director for the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation.


“During the hectic work weeks it is easy to overlook the one skill set that can truly expedite your success and set you apart from your competition: leadership skills,” said Morgan. “Leaders aren't just born, they can be made. And when individuals commit themselves to their personal leadership development, they make a real impact in their lives, their businesses and to others.”


This is the third installment of the speaker series in Traverse City. The Business Owners Speaker Series provides an opportunity to hear local business leaders share strategies and ideas that can help any business succeed.
