A CONFERENCE STYLE APPROACH TO PROMOTING LEADERSHIP IN OUR YOUNG PEOPLE FOR WYOMING’S FUTURE.

THE LIFT EVENT

Is a platform designed to engage, entice, and educate our up-and-coming young professionals about what Wyoming has to offer! Join us for an amazing opportunity to hear from Wyoming’s leaders from across the state. Friday night will be full of excitement as we invite three of Wyoming’s influential leaders to share their hearts with you and then we will set them up for a Q&A as our panelists for the evening!  Connect and discuss with leaders and peers that night with our milk and cookie social. Then Saturday morning will be jam-packed with 3 more sessions from Wyoming’s finest followed by lunch–and don’t worry…it’s free and delicious. We wouldn’t send hungry high schooler’s away with full minds but empty bellies! We are so excited to see you all there! It’s Gonna Be Great!

Brief Description of LIFT Talk:

We are creating a generation of young men and women who are more lost, more confused and more insecure about who they are and who they want to become. We have told you to become dependent on others and to settle for mediocrity. I am here to say no more, you were created for greatness, you were created to L.E.A.D. This is your time, this is your moment! Together we will rise!
