Topic: Effective Leadership
We welcomed David as a guest speaker last year when he provided a well-received and informative body language session for us and this year he will be hosting a workshop focusing on leadership development.
"I have learned one indisputable fact about leadership: Where leaders lead well, people thrive and where leaders lead poorly, people suffer. Essentially, success or failure is dependent on the quality of leadership.”
As a community activist, volunteer policeman, businessman, husband and father, David Allen has assumed many different leadership roles. Using lessons he has learned during an eventful life, including those from encounters with other effective leaders (such as former President Nelson Mandela).
