Second Annual LeadSC Inspires Millennial Workforce

For the second year in a row, young professionals were blown away by the abundance and wealth of experience at this year’s LEADSC Summit held last week. The South Carolina Chamber, in a nod to the future leadership of our state, was proud to host individuals from all industries and all geographies. The Twittersphere lit up as young pros had a chance to ask Governor Nikki Haley questions about being a leader in times of adversity. She was just one of many leaders who gave their time to the young talent of the Palmetto State. The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce would like to thank sponsors once again for supporting this great event.
