Often referred to as the best networking event in Bergen County, Fifth Friday is hosted by Bergen LEADS, a community leadership program for adults offered by the Volunteer Center of Bergen County. The mission of the Volunteer Center is to strengthen the community by connecting people through service and developing civic leaders.
Eli Amdur, senior coach and advisor at Amdur Coaching and Advisory Group, LLC, and author of the weekly Career Coach column for The Record, will speak about the pace of change in the 21st century. He says, “Change has always been a part of our lives; however, in the 21st century, the pace of change is more rapid and its scope is far greater than ever before. As a leader, it is imperative to look further ahead than you ever did, to ‘meet the future before it gets here’. If you do, you win. Otherwise, you risk your very existence. This is not a threat; it is an opportunity.” This futuristic talk will focus on what leaders have to do to lead their organizations into that future.
PNC Wealth Management has returned as the presenting sponsor for the 2014 Fifth Friday series. The event is also supported by TD Bank, Archer & Greiner, Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce, Synetek Solutions, (201) Magazine and The Record.
