The Leadership Breakfast Series is a regular campus event where community leaders share their knowledge on different topics. While enjoying a buffet-style breakfast, local business professionals and government officials join Maranatha faculty, staff, and students to network and converse with each other. Each breakfast features a guest speaker, relevant topics, and a brief introduction to Maranatha.
Each speaker will share career experience, offer practical industry wisdom, and address trends and best practices in leadership. Join students and professionals from a variety of vocations for opportunities to connect with others and to grow as a leader.
