Annual Celebration!
Find The Energy of Influence for Success

Wednesday, December 9 | 6 - 7:30 PM | REGISTER

Our holiday event is about celebrating our successes and appreciation for those who have helped us succeed.  As you were a part of this community throughout the year, we invite you to be a part of this culminating event!

We also have joining us TEDx speaker and violinist Diane Allen

Diane has helped thousands of people around the world to break through their performance gaps and unleash their potential and in this experiential multi-sensory talk she shows you how to successfully lead with the same skills she used to lead an orchestra and the audience without ever using a single word.

In this event, Diane will share her simple three-step system for people to first access their flow state and then apply it to be an influential leader.

Use the three steps to access the energy of influence, on demand

  • Experience personal bests on a daily basis.
  • Increase your influence.
  • Enroll others with your enthusiasm.
  • Lead by example.

Book Club ~ A Leader's Guide to Storytelling

Mondays, Dec. 7 & 14 | 7 - 8:30 PM 


Use the right story at the right time to inspire change and action by connecting with people’s minds and hearts!

Series Dates:

To help integrate the concepts and lock in the learning from the book, the book Discussion session will be followed by two optional independent workshops on story development. Not sure if you want to attend one or both of the workshops, come to the discussion and decide then.  

The ATD-OC Book Club is open to non-members too! It’s a great way to learn more about ATD-OC and our wonderful members.
