About Grit Talks
Grit Talks are a quarterly speaker and networking event featuring interesting local leaders answering seven questions over fifteen minutes. Woven together their answers will illustrate a common story. Failure….Overcoming it…. and the resulting success. Speakers will be business owners and leaders from our community who we know or should know with stories of inspiration to share. The talks will be held at The Mill’s Theatre N and the speakers will be captured on video and archived on the Grit Talk website for ongoing sharing and viewing. Guests will be asked to arrive at Theatre N at 8:00 a.m. for thirty minutes of coffee and networking. The talks will begin promptly at 8:30am followed by fifteen minutes of Q&A and additional networking until 9:30am.
