The classes of 2014 and 2015 are proud to bring you a one-day symposium that focuses on leadership in public gardens. From topic selection, original graphic design, and clever marketing, to working with individuals, organizations, and businesses to raise funds to help defray the costs of the symposium. It will be a day for you- for networking with others in your field, for reinforcing what you know, for gaining stronger knowledge about a topic, and for giving you new ideas to teach to others when you return to your workforce. In addition, the graduate students have researched and selected an inspiring group of speakers. Each one is very different, speaking from his or her own expert view on the topic of leadership and how it pertains to you at your garden or arboretum.
To learn more about the exciting line-up of speakers, stay tuned to this blog in the coming weeks, where we will be posting the speaker bios and their talk descriptions. You can also check out our Facebook page, and register here for the event.
(Y)our Symposium is only three weeks away (Friday, March 7th), and is being held in Longwood Gardens’ beautiful ballroom, with a scrumptious lunch included and served on the Patio of Oranges during Longwood’s Orchid Extravaganza. If you’re coming from far away, you have until February 21 to get the discounted rate on a hotel room from Hilton Garden Inn, just down the road. We look forward to seeing you!
Different leaders grow from different soils.
