Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its South Carolina playground consultants, Carolina Parks & Play, LLC, are excited to support the 24th Annual Southern Leisure Management & Trends Institute Jan. 25-27, in Newberry, S.C. The Institute will feature Lyle Sumek, founder of Lyle Sumek Associates, Inc., as Monday’s morning presenter. This learning experience was made possible through the 2014-2015 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

Sumek’s presentation will focus on working with public officials and provide attendees with “A Driving Guide: Observations from the Road.” According to Sumek, every generation of governmental leaders think that their challenges are greater than prior generations; however, the challenges today are just different. Attendees will learn how to focus on the future by understanding and acting on present realities and anticipating and preparing for future opportunities.

Sumek will present on Monday, Jan. 26, from 8:30 to 11:45 a.m. at the Newberry Firehouse Conference Center.
