As part of their eight-month program, the members of Leadership Orlando Class 82 participated in The B.I.G.* Summit to learn more about the strong entrepreneurial cluster that is based in the Orlando Economic Center. Understanding that entrepreneurs and small businesses are the engine of our economy, they were treated to a private session during lunch with keynoter, Gary Vaynerchuk, as well as autographed copies of his new book, The Thank You Economy.
"This powerful day of learning and idea sharing, discussing new opportunities and forging new business relationships is about building a strong and vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem right here in our region," said Leslie Hielema, President of Orlando, Inc. "The B.I.G.* Summit has become the premier event for entrepreneurs and business leaders across Central Florida."
