Leadership Breakfasts

The Leadership Breakfast Series began with a local businessman seeking a place to gather to discuss relevant topics. This series provides local businesses, government officials, MBU faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to gain knowledge on current, relevant, and interesting topics in an inviting space. Additionally, it exposes MBU students to the surrounding business community. Come and enjoy a delicious buffet-style breakfast while you network with fellow business professionals from the Watertown community and surrounding areas. Each breakfast features a guest speaker, compelling topics, and a brief introduction to MBU.


Breakfast opens: 7 a.m.
Presentation start: 7:30 a.m.

Breakfasts are $5 per guest, unless otherwise noted.
