St. Andrew to hold leadership seminar
St. Andrew Lutheran Church of Cape Girardeau is a host site for Maximum Impact Simulcast: Advance, a satellite seminar downlink to be held Friday in 600 churches across the country. This live leadership seminar broadcast from Atlanta has trained more than 250,000 business professionals in the last six years. The Maximum Impact Simulcast is about helping people advance, according to Jeremie Kubicek, chief executive officer and president of GiANT Impact, owner of Maximum Impact. The business model for the simulcast consists of partnering with churches to bring relevant business and leadership training to workplace leaders in their communities. The use of churches is a logical choice, he said, because of their desire to provide leadership solutions for business leaders in their community and because they provide a venue conducive to hosting a live satellite presentation. For reservations, call St. Andrew Lutheran Church at 334-3200. For more information, visit the Maximum Impact Web site at www.maximumimpact.com/mis.
