The evening will be high energy and offer professional and personal insight into some of the interesting and creative individuals living in our community. Seventeen different personalities will get on stage one after the other and share with the audience a piece of their lives and in just a very short period of time. 5-minutes to be exact! The format is kept short to keep the program moving along. The presentations are timed for 20 slides; each slide auto-advances on the screen every 15 seconds.
