Prosper Jefferson: Leadership

There are many words used to describe a leader: innovative, visionary, passionate, confident, and inspiring. The list goes on and on. One of the finest qualities many great leaders have is the ability to unleash the potential in their employees. Leaders inspire results within the workplace and motivate their teams to do their best work.

As part of the 2019 Prosper Jefferson seminar series, the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce are pleased to feature several business owners who have great leadership successes. They will share their own experiences while also discussing important topics related to leadership in the workplace, including:

  • Traits of a good leader
  • How leaders drive engagement
  • How to grow your business through effective leadership skills
  • How leaders can leverage principles of personal transformation projects to be more effective professionally

Featured speakers include Brandy D. Christian, President & CEO of the Port of New Orleans and CEO of the New Orleans Public Belt Railroad Corp., Neel Sus, CEO of Susco Solutions; and Brian Moldaner, Metairie Office Manager of T. Baker Smith.
