April Speaker Luncheon

We are excited to have Rich Tyson come speak to us for our April Business Luncheon. Rich is a consultant and executive coach to CEOs. His personal mission is to learn true leadership and business principles, to teach those principles to others, and to facilitate the implementation of those principles in his own life and business--and in the lives and businesses of others. His focus is on business strategy, team-building, problem-solving, and managing for results—including the enhancement of productivity, employee engagement, and financial outcomes.

Rich is the founder and principal owner of CEObuilder, which provides forums for consulting and coaching to executives in small businesses. He has built CEObuilder around the distinctive competencies of exceptional facilitation, life-long learning, synergistic associations, and mutual commitment. Over the past 28 years, CEObuilder has served over over 100 companies in more than 30 different industries.

April Speaker Luncheon with Rich Tyson
April 11, 2018
11:45 am - 1:00 pm
American Fork Fire Department
96 N Center St
American Fork, UT 84003

The American Fork Police Department will be teaching a FREE Community Education Class before the luncheon, beginning at 11:00 am. The police department feels it is very important to have a great relationship with the businesses in our area. With that in mind, one idea they had to help foster those relationships is to hold a meeting where the police department can provide some useful educational information to help our businesses prosper and then be available for any questions or discussions. Our first topic of discussion will include some basic information on crime prevention. For example, should we leave outside lights on or off at night or where should we place surveillance cameras? We will discuss current trends for our area including some statistics on crime that are directly affecting our businesses.
