The City of Muleshoe through the Economic Development Corporation presents Leadership Muleshoe from 9 a.m.-noon Thursday, Nov. 2, at the City Training Facility, 303 S. Main St.
The free event will feature Jody Holland and Matty McLain.
Author, speaker, trainer and coach, Holland has worked with companies in 14 countries, in fields that include healthcare, manufacturing, retail, food service and governments. His ability to teach the skills of supervision and leadership has kept him in demand. He loves to help people see the potential that exists in their people and then draw that potential to the surface.
Located in Amarillo, Matty McLain with Leading Edge Entrepreneur Development Group works in partnership with Economic Development corporations in the Panhandle region.
“I know Matty well,” said Kasey Coker, Director of Economic Development for the City of Muleshoe. “He is in Muleshoe all day once a month. He takes appointments and focuses on business owners wanting to buy, sell or expand a business, looks at the documents and evaluates that process. He meets with businesses to help people who have an idea, but no idea of how to bring it to the actual product.”
Following the 9 a.m. to noon sessions, Leadership Muleshoe will meet with juniors and seniors at Muleshoe High School to discuss business decisions in their future.
“Not only business people, but community leaders in general could benefit from these sessions,” Coker said.
Coker said so far, 30 people had signed up for the event, which was made possible through a grant from the Office of the Governor.
“Our hope is to start having a series of speakers with topics of interest,” Coker said. “The grant is a way to introduce the series without the expense. By partnering with the governor, we’re able to pay for the speakers, the materials and the marketing behind all that.”
Coker said she hopes that the session will encourage participants to work as a team to generate new ideas.
“Sales and marketing have changed over the years,” she said. “I want participants to have a takeaway that they haven’t quite thought of yet.”
