---- — Merrimack College and The Eagle-Tribune are partnering to bring the best and the brightest minds in leadership to the North of Boston region.
The four-part Merrimack Valley Leadership Series will bring in such internationally-recognized leadership experts as John C. Maxwell, Sir Ken Robinson, and Michael Hyatt, among others.
“Bringing these nationally and internationally known speakers to the Merrimack Valley is amazing. If it were not for the Merrimack College community, it would not be possible,” said Al Getler, publisher of The Eagle-Tribune. “The speakers we are featuring are at the top of their fields in leadership, education, creativity, social media, marketing and publishing.”
The Merrimack Valley Leadership Series takes place Oct. 31, Jan. 29, 2013, April 2, 2013 and May 10, 2013. All events will take place at the Rogers Center on the Merrimack College campus, 315 Turnpike St., North Andover.
“It is my hope that everyone in the Merrimack Valley understands the value of this leadership series,” Getler said. “We are bringing top-flight thinkers here and making the price of admission very affordable. Anyone with plans to grow in their chosen field will benefit.”
