Having recently performed in Baton Rouge opeing the Miss USA pageant, Marc Broussard will kick-off the Live After Five Fall Season is grand style. He's come a long way since 2004 when the precocious 22-year-old singer/songwriter released his major-label debut, "Carencro," after the Louisiana town where he was born and raised. That album and the three that followed revealed Broussard as an old-school Southern soul singer blessed with a rarefied gift and innate stylistic and emotional authenticity. His most recent masterpiece, "A Life Worth Living," is available July 29, 2014.

Kean Miller (400 Convention St.)
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Bruce S. Wilkinson, CSP, will present "Building a Better Business: It's the Peoplework-Not the Paperwork," at this month's Member Event, a Lunch & Learn.
Increasing overhead, competition, customer/client expectations, shrinking margins, employment/regulatory issues and diverse, multi-generational communication concerns can take a toll on today's sometimes overworked business leaders and their team, resulting in loss profits, potential litigation, government fines, low morale, poor service and a stressful place to work. The key is to create a comfortable, cooperative, positive attitude culture and climate, resulting in an atmosphere of co-worker leadership, respect, engagement, world class service and personal responsibility. This will be a fun, highly engaging, content driven presentation on how to creatively build a better business by focusing on the peoplework in order to maintain a growing organization where people want to work and customers/clients want to buy and be served.
Members ONLY. RSVP Required. Would you like an invitation to the event?
