Earlier this month, SEU had the opportunity to host SEU Forum, our 7th annual National Leadership Forum. It has quickly become one of my favorite times of year. Not only do we get the chance to hear from nationally renowned speakers, but it also gives us the opportunity to connect with business, professional, and church leaders from across the country. I was so proud of our team and everyone who had a hand in the event. It takes a lot of work to organize, promote, and host the Forum each year, and the people who work so diligently to make it a success always inspire me.
While the people behind SEU Forum did an excellent job sharing highlights from the Forum on Twitter and our communications department recapped the conference well, I wanted to take some time to do a little recap myself.
Here are some of my highlights from SEU Forum 2013, all less than 140 characters:
