“Leadership SWFL was truly an eye-opening experience. It not only gave me the opportunity to spend time with inspirational leaders, it offered a rare inside look at different institutions that make our community such an incredible place to live. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, and challenged my leadership skills. The wealth of knowledge gained and the life-long relationships formed during the program made the entire experience truly valuable.”
