October 2021 RBPN Dinner

Wednesday, October 27, 2021 (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) (EDT)


We are pleased to announce Wendy Gates Corbett, president of Signature Presentations, as our October RBPN dinner. Wendy's presentation, 5 Creative Ways to Promote Emotional Safety in an Uncertain World, tackles a very timely topic. With so much of our world at work and beyond unfamiliar and uncertain, we are looking for new strategies to support ourselves, our colleagues, and our employees. Well-being and a sense of safety are front and center today. Wendy shares what she’s learned from conversations with leaders of small businesses and global entities to find out what new strategies they’re using to create cultures that care.

Prior to the plated dinner being served, we’ll have our networking hour from 6-7 PM, giving you a chance to mingle with other professionals in the community. As dinner gets underway, we'll hear from Wendy. There will be plenty of time for Q&A, plus the remainder of the evening available for more mingling. It’s sure to be a great time and we hope you can make it!

Dinner pricing includes a salad, entree (including a vegetarian option), and dessert, along with non-alcoholic beverages. A full cash bar is available with a wide selection of beer, wine, and well drinks. This particular menu also happens to be entirely gluten-free.
