Your Guide For the 2024 LIVE2LEAD:Harrisonburg Experience with Dove Development & Consulting!

We are excited to have our dear friend Craig Johnson joining us as this year's local emcee!

Craig Johnson was born in Baltimore and earned his Bachelor's in Business Administration (Accounting) as well as his Master's in Business Administration (Finance) from Loyola University Maryland.  He has over 34 years of business experience in the financial services industry ranging from start-up companies to national organizations.  Craig ascended to the position of Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO of a super-regional insurance company where he was responsible for 850 teammates and $850 million in revenue operating in 19 states based in Florida.  After serving over 30 years in Corporate America, Craig and his wife Kim moved to Charlottesville to better support aging parents and pursue their dream of running a family business.  In 2021, they purchased the Waynesboro Landscape & Garden Center which had been in existence since 1946.  Two years later, Craig and Kim acquired the Virginia Boxwood Company which also operates out of Waynesboro and had been in business for over 3 decades.  Most recently, in 2024, they purchased both All Seasons Irrigation & Lighting as well as Cornerstone Irrigation to better provide a one-stop solution for customers.  Their son Nathan joined the business in October of 2021 and daughter-in-law Kate will be starting this August.

We cherish the friendship we've been able to develop with Craig, his family, and their entire team. We have tremendous respect for all he's contributed to our local community in just the last few years and we're thrilled to have him join us for this event!

Join Us For This TENTH Annual Leadership Development EXPERIENCE!

LIVE2LEAD is designed to equip you with new perspectives, practical tools and key takeaways. You'll breathe new life into your leadership during this information-packed session. By hosting this event, we hope to provide you with the opportunity to learn from world-class leadership experts without leaving town, gain access to the top leaders our area has to offer, and return to your office ready to implement your new action plan and lead with renewed passion and commitment.

Start planning now to attend the premier leadership and professional development event in VIRGINIA on Friday, October 4, 2024 at Blue Ridge Community College's Plecker Workforce Center. The TENTH Annual LIVE2LEAD:Harrisonburg Experience will feature exclusively licensed content from world class leadership expert John C. Maxwell and several other world-class thought leaders!!! This is a leadership development experience designed to equip attendees with new perspectives, practical tools, and key takeaways.

This year’s EXCLUSIVE Local Leadership Keynote will feature two of our area’s most effective voices on leadership, Wes and Cindy Dove with Dove Development & Consulting, who will be challenging you to take a hard look at What's KILLING Your Profitability?, based on  the Amazon #1 Best Selling book Wes released in early 2024! Like every lesson Wes & Cindy share, they'll be providing practical steps you can apply to capture lost profitability so you can take immediate action and get an immediate return on investment.

As we continue to work to make Dove Development & Consulting the premier leadership and personnel development resource in the Virginia, we invest a tremendous amount of effort into making sure this annual event gives you more value that anything else of its kind at a local level! We look forward to sharing this experience with you!

See you there!
