Press Release: United Way of Forsyth County Chief Marketing Officer Kim Thore Selected to Join Leadercast Women As an Influencer October 18, 2019

Leadercast Women is a one-day leadership development event simulcast LIVE from Atlanta to hundreds of locations throughout the world, including the North Carolina Piedmont.  Men and women alike will be emboldened to take courage in their daily lives, whether it be in the workplace or at home. At this one-day leadership event, nine leading women will share their inspirational stories of courage while also teaching everyone steps to enable change in their lives. This year’s focus is Courage: Courage is not the absence of fear; courage is acting in spite of fear. When we consider courage, firefighters, policemen, pilots and military personnel come to mind but courage isn’t reserved for a select group of leaders. Opportunities to take courage rise every day in many forms, and it’s up to us to seize those moments in our leadership.

On Friday, October 18th the Lewisville Chamber of Commerce will be a host site for Leadercast Women 2019. This leadership conference will be simulcast live around the globe and Lewisville Clemmons is the only host site between Virginia and Georgia. The Leadercast Women experience is only available at the host sites or live in Atlanta. Attendees will be emboldened to take courage in their daily lives, whether it be in the workplace or at home.

As an influential leader and role model in the Winston Salem/Forsyth County Community and an influencer in the state, Ms. Thore was selected by the chamber committee due to her dedication to the advancement of women in the nonprofit industry. Thore will lead an hour-long round table discussion at Leadercast Women Lewisville-Clemmons. Topics of discussion will stem from talks given during the morning sessions.

Thore notes, “I am very honored to be a part of such an exciting and thought-provoking event. As a leader with an organization like the United Way, which embraces courage in making our community a better place, I look forward to sharing ideas with other like-minded women. Most importantly, I am excited to learn from other leaders in our community.”

About Leadercast: Leadercast is dedicated to building leaders others will follow by providing solutions, events and resources for individuals, teams, organizations and corporations across all industries.
