Hear from Chris Kuenne, Entrepreneur and Co-Author of Built for Growth: How Builder Personality Shapes Your Business, Your Team, and Your Ability to Win. His Wall Street Journal Bestseller asks, “Are You a Driver, an Explorer, a Crusader, or a Captain?” Many factors shape the success or failure of a new business, whether it’s a stand-alone startup or a venture inside a larger corporation. But the most important and least understood of these factors is the personality of the entrepreneur, the particular combination of beliefs and preferences that drives his or her motivation, decision making, and leadership style. And your builder personality is the one resource you can directly control in growing a business that wins. Simply put, who you are shapes how you build for growth. Built for Growth decodes the interplay between builder personality and new business success.

Join us for networking and an informative program.
