New York, NY (PRWEB) April 27, 2010
AMA Enterprises and CorePurpose Publishing today announced a private VIP and Media Event to honor three exemplary examples of leadership and teamwork: Lynn Tilton of Patriarch Partners, Monica Crowley of Fox News, and Ken Colburn of Data Doctors.
A serial entrepreneur and pioneer in the earth and human friendly products movement, Antonetti rose to national attention as a mom who when solving a life threatening problem for her child, came across a solution that not only solved her family’s problem, but birthed a national brand of “green” products. A popular speaker, entrepreneurial commentator, and guest on programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show, The BIG Idea with Donny Deutsch, and Fox Strategy Room, she was amazed at how often the challenges related to teamwork and leadership popped up in her discussions. Her answer can be found in The Recipe: A fable for leaders and teams where shares the lessons learned along her own journey.
“So often, events like this are all about the author and the book,” shared Joan Koerber-Walker, Chairman of CorePurpose, Inc. and publisher of The Recipe. “As we began to plan the event, it was apparent that we needed something different and fitting to share The Recipe’s message. What could be better than evenings that focus on the book’s core messages – leadership and teamwork. “
“We wanted to have a great cross section from different parts of the country and different industries representing companies of all sizes” added Antonetti. “We needed to demonstrate what The Recipe is all about – not just talk about it. Now more than ever, we need leaders and teams along with great examples to inspire us all.”.
Not your typical leadership love fest, the featured leaders from across the country will each bring their own unique perspective on leadership and teamwork to the back-to-back evening events. In the words of Leadership Honoree Lynn Tilton "Americans hunger for authentic leaders who will provide them with truth and a path paved with direction and promise. Truth is cold and hard but it is also the first step towards hope and salvation.”
Antonetti took the discussion one step further. “We won’t have all the answers, no one does. But if I have learned anything over the year, it is that experience matters. So we have gathered a group of great leaders and over the course of the two evenings, will have an opportunity to come together, to collaborate and to share experiences. It’s a start and you have to start somewhere.”
The private invitation only preview of The Recipe exclusively for the media and special guests will be held from 6PM to 8 PM, Monday May 10, 2010 at ASTRA (14th floor of the D&D Building) 979 3rd Avenue, New York, NY 10022-3805.
