February 20-21, 2014 at Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, FL
Preparations are being made for the Breakfast With Fred Leadership Institute team to go to West Balm Beach, FL for the next BWFLI two-day event. As one of the top Christian colleges in Florida, Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) has more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs. Established in 1968, PBA is a young and active university community.
The BWFLI team members will be there as a resource of experience attending their assemblies, classrooms, lunch halls, and study areas. They will be discussing a wide range of daily life, goal planning, and keys to leadership. BWFLI is looking forward to coming to the campus on February 20 and 21 to connect with the student body.
“We come to stretch and bless the next generation of leaders…to the glory of God,” said Brenda A. Smith, President and CEO of BWF Project, Inc, host of the Breakfast With Fred Leadership Institute.
Named for Fred Smith, Sr., a business executive, Christian layman, and known as “mentor to a generation of leaders,” who died in 2007, teams of leading men and women from across America come at their own expense to share life experiences, wisdom, and leadership principles with students.
Dr. Dale Lunsford, President of LeTourneau University, commented “the leaders of tomorrow’s world are currently on America’s campuses.” The Breakfast With Fred Leadership Institute focuses on the influence of intergenerational interaction and conversation, inviting men and women 60+ to create connections with these future leaders.
“The students are still talking about the connections made.” “This is an important event which makes a permanent impact on campus life.” “The influence of the BWFLI team continues.” These reactions from previous schools demonstrate the value of this upcoming opportunity.
The “leadership blitz” includes an immersion in campus life through classrooms, chapel service, student government sessions, special interest meetings, community outreach, and faculty conversations.
