NALP's Leaders Forum Heads to Phoenix, January 19-22

Fairfax, VA., (November 9, 2021) — The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) has announced that Leaders Forum, its executive-level education and networking event, will be held at The Arizona Biltmore, January 19-22, 2021.  

Leaders Forum brings together landscape and lawn care CEOs and executives for leadership education, networking, and peer learning.

This year’s event features case studies and explorations in leadership and team-building strategies that foster happier and more successful teams. Interactive sessions will be led by experts Sean Martin, Associate Professor of Management at University of Virginia's Darden School of Business, and Eric Karpinski, management consultant, venture capitalist and author of Put Happiness to Work: 7 Strategies to Elevate Engagement for Optimal Performance. 

Engaging, interactive sessions will help attendees reflect on their leadership style and learn to create a happier, more innovative and engaged team.

Leaders Forum also includes a variety of exclusive structured and unstructured networking opportunities. In addition, attendees are encouraged to bring key staff members to experience leadership development at a relaxed pace that allows for innovative thinking.

“The Arizona Biltmore is a stunning and easily accessible location, so we expect the conference to sell out quickly with such powerful leadership development education and stellar networking opportunities on tap,” said Britt Wood, NALP CEO.
