Two upcoming seminars will show business leaders how to shepherd their companies through difficult times and tough choices. The Above Board Chamber of Florida will address the Southwest Florida water crisis at a luncheon meeting in Fort Myers and demonstrate how to identify the right sales opportunities at another forum in Naples.

Chad Gillis, environmental reporter for The News-Press Media Group, will serve as master of ceremonies for the Fort Myers meeting on the impact of the water crisis on business. He’ll lead a panel of the following experts who’ll explore solutions and give support:

  • John Cassani, Calusa Waterkeeper.
  • Suzanne Specht, assistant director and full-time certified business consultant for the Florida Small Business Development Center at Florida Gulf Coast University.
  • Capt. Chris Whitman, program director of Captains for Clean Water.
  • Rae Ann Wessel, limnologist, marine scientist and natural resource policy director for the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.

In Naples, Creative Business Coaches founder and owner Susan Armstrong Ryan will lead a program designed to help challenge traditional business thinking. The “Never Leave a Sale on the Table — Unless You Really Should!” seminar panel features the following:

  • Cynthia Davis, CEO of The Imaj Group and founder of Leaders of Distinction.
  • Carrie Ann Texter, planned maintenance sales professional at Conditioned Air.
