What happens at each session?

Each Leader Board session will feature:

  • Leadership principles from the Bible taught by Dallas Theological Seminary professors
  • Real-world insight from recognized leaders including a Q & A session
  • Interaction with other marketplace leaders and opportunities to be encouraged and challenged


“These sessions have allowed us to interact with other "believer leaders" and great biblical speakers. It's not so much what we say as it is how we treat our people, our vendors, our customers, and each other!”
