Chef Amy Sins

Walk the Talk – Mentorship, Leadership, Professionalism


Wednesday, Nov 6 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

As a business person, you communicate, problem-solve, inspire and lead daily. Whether you are a salesperson, a manager or a business owner, how you present yourself creates a lasting impression on your team and customers. Take a moment to stop and identify your core values and voice and verify that you are living those values in everything you do. Then lead by being authentic & persistent while holding yourself accountable.

In this seminar we will discuss:
- How we want to be seen in the hearts and minds of others
- What are our core values and how do we model our behavior to match them
- Defining our communities- both within the organization and outside of it
- Effective leadership; inspire, take risks, be the spark and WALK THE TALK



The National WWII Museum Tour

What better way to fully immerse yourself in leadership practices for the week than to tour a facility dedicated to our country's bravest leaders—our military forces!

Join fellow ELEVATE attendees for a tour of The National WWII Museum – the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans. The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.

Its expansive collections include more than 250,000 artifacts & over 9,000 personal accounts supporting major exhibits and research. Elevate attendees will have the opportunity to view a WWII film, Beyond All Boundaries, narrated and produced by Tom Hanks.
