For immediate release, January 15, 2013:
Not your ordinary press release.
Instead of raving about Focus Louisville ourselves, we’ll let the graduates tell you about it.
“I learned that Louisville is home to some incredible, game-changing work and play, both locally and globally”
“In many ways it is ‘A Tale of Two Cities’, one well-fed, well-housed and well-educated, and another poorly fed, poorly-housed, or even homeless, and uneducated. This is an experience that will stimulate your mind and touch your heart. At the end you will be a different person; one committed to solving the city’s problems and helping your fellow citizens.”
“I broadened my circle of contacts among local leaders, found a great new partner for my organization and developed a renewed energy for the cool things happening in our city.”
“For me, the experience of participating in such a great program has opened up a new world of opportunities. I lacked the exposure to civic leaders in our community before participating.”
“Meeting a number of leaders within the Louisville community, I have been able to put together specific staff professional development plans and connect employees to leaders within the Louisville community who can support their personal growth.”
“The experience as a whole made me much more knowledgeable, while providing me with a place to connect with business and community leaders from all walks of life. I left feeling more confident about my ability to contribute to the community and more sure of where I can get started.”
“Focus Louisville provides a unique way for us to fulfill our commitment to making positive impact in the communities where we do business. Participants leave with new knowledge and connections, ready to lead as engaged citizens.”
-Paul Costel, president of Chase Kentucky
“There’s no better way to build a network and get to know your community than through Focus Louisville, exactly what newcomers to Louisville are looking for. We’re proud to be a sponsor.”
-Judie Parks, Prudential Parks & Weisberg REALTORS
