I learned so much about our city and our region, visited some amazing places, and got to know so many great people. I especially enjoyed all of the tours that I had a chance to take. I am more motivated than ever to help keep moving our city forward.
Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
Melissa Demorest of Demorest Law Firm, PLLC recently graduated from the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Leadership Detroit program, a 10-month transformational leadership program designed to challenge emerging and existing community leaders from Southeast Michigan to bring about positive change.
“I learned so much about our city and our region, visited some amazing places, and got to know so many great people. I especially enjoyed all of the tours that I had a chance to take. I am more motivated than ever to help keep moving our city forward,” Demorest said.
As part of Leadership Detroit’s Class XXXIV, Demorest joined 67 executives from across the region, representing a cross-section of the community, including business, organized labor, government, education, media, civic groups, health services and community organizations.
“We are thrilled to work with another great class of dynamic individuals who are committed to building a better tomorrow for the Detroit region,” said Dan Piepszowski, senior director of community leadership development at the Chamber. “As the region and state continue to bounce back economically, it’s heartening to see the enthusiasm among key emerging leaders across this diverse set of organizations. The Chamber is proud to help connect and build partnerships that will be important to tackling key issues facing the region.”
The commencement ceremony took place at the Detroit Yacht Club and featured remarks from Leadership Detroit Class XXV graduate Deidre Bounds, chief operating officer, Ignite Social Media, who provided perspective and shared ideas on the importance of leveraging leadership skills when navigating change.
