About The Program

Leadership SWFL is a community immersion program dedicated to developing business professionals with a greater understanding of the community and creating a network of individuals ready to serve on boards and in other volunteer leadership roles in the region.

The primary objective of Leadership SWFL is to educate business professionals about the economic, demographic and societal resources and challenges in the region. Program participants develop life-long friendships and enduring professional connections.

“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.”
