    August 28, 2017 
    Your Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce continues to create innovative opportunities to build your business by building relationships. Our annual Golf Classic is no exception. This year we added a Calcutta (Afternoon Social) event on September 24 from 4-630pm at Witherspoon Distillery. Those already registered for the golf classic taking place the next day have a pass for themselves plus one guest each (non-transferrable).
    The event is a fundraiser to support the incredible work of our Leadership Lewisville program. At the Calcutta, attendees can expect to hear some great and very unique music that we will reveal later this week. They will also be treated to some incredible tastings by epicurean masters at Seven Loaves Catering, Shoal Creek Tavern, Prohibition Chicken and, Verf's Grill & Tavern.
    Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on a silent auction featuring an evening wine cruise of Lake Grapevine, Spa packages, Ladies Night Out packages etc. We will provide a tasting gift to take home of the award-winning Witherspoon Distillery Bourbon Whiskey to the first 100 folks that register via our website in support of Leadership Lewisville for $30.00 each.

    What CEOs Should Know About Speaking Up on Political Issues
    The unpredictability of our current political environment, in the U.S. and around the globe, has drawn company leaders into a maelstrom. CEOs don't know whether a presidential tweet will bring their company into the limelight, or whether a controversial policy will pressure them to speak out. For example, there was anxiety among CEOs about how to respond to President Trump's recent executive order restricting immigration. There's even an app that notifies users when the president tweets about a particular company.

    404, the story of a page not found
    Oops! Nobody wants to see the 404: Page Not Found. But as Renny Gleeson shows us, while he runs through a slideshow of creative and funny 404 pages, every error is really a chance to build a better relationship.
    The Ladders
    No wonder we don't fear robots at work. Many of us feel like robots in the office anyway, survey finds
    How do you feel when you don't have power over what you produce on your team? When was the last time one of your ideas got the green light?
    It's clear that people like a certain amount of autonomy at work- without it, we lose our motivation, our ability to succeed, and our health.
