Live Learn Lead

Community-wide speaker series

Live Learn Lead


Our community-wide Live Learn Lead (LLL) speaker series is designed to address emerging and relevant issues that help build a stronger and more resilient Sandy Springs and Greater Perimeter area. In 2019, Live Learn Lead won the “Excellence in Innovation” award by the national Association of Leadership Programs!

In 2020-2021, LLL converted to virtual events and expanded programming, adding Live Learn Lead at Noon and Sharing our Stories. Now, Live Learn Lead at Noon has returned as an engaging in-person community luncheon.

Save the date for November 10, 2022, when Live Learn Lead, our signature thought leaders dinner returns with the compelling program: Depolarizing Conversations. Details will follow shortly.
