Leadership Discovery, a leadership development program by the Charleston Metro Chamber, has announced the Fall 2018 graduates. The program is an innovative, skills-based experience that allows members the opportunity to learn from experienced executives in the Charleston region.

“I am incredibly grateful for the Leadership Discovery experience. We were connected with many wonderful leaders from a variety of industries, who were kind enough to share their leadership styles and experiences. They answered our questions honestly, and they openly discussed how they handle both successes and mishaps,” said Ashley Heffernan, Director of Communications and Operations, Tri-County Cradle to Career. “I am now more confident in how to handle difficult situations, and I have more meaningful connections around the region. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to learn and grow in their career.”​
