Laura Reed, Public Relations Director and Owner of the St. Louis area Marketing and PR Firm Cork Tree Creative, Inc. graduated from the respected Riverbend Growth Association Leadership Academy Friday, May 15. Eight graduates celebrated this accomplishment after completing a nine-month program that included presentations from local business and political leaders, exercises in public speaking and communication enhancement endeavors. In addition to field trips and meetings with public officials, participants networked among themselves and forged lasting relationships within their fields and beyond.
Reed said the sessions were quite informative, covering a wide-variety of subject matter to include healthcare, transportation and the media. “Working with this top-notch group of professionals has been a rewarding experience that I will never forget. I’ve now expanded my networking circle to include some great people, socially and professionally.”
The RBGA will hold its next Leadership Academy in the fall of 2016 and will make a call for nominations in July of 2016. Nominees should be between the ages of 21 and 40 and be up and coming employees in the businesses in which they work.
