Leadership Circle Investors Treated to Unique Engagement Opportunities

This month, Leadership Circle investors were treated to a unique blend of experiences that encapsulated both learning and engagement. From behind-the-scenes insights at Mankiewicz Coatings to an exclusive evening at the South Carolina Aquarium, participants were immersed in diverse settings that broadened their horizons and fostered meaningful connections.

The highlight of the month awaited at the South Carolina Aquarium, where the Leadership Circle Experience unfolded in spectacular fashion. The aquarium, typically bustling with visitors, was transformed into a private venue for guests. As they explored the marine life, attendees delved into the heart of conservation efforts, particularly through an intimate encounter with the Sea Turtle Care Center. Engaging with dedicated staff members, participants learned about the center’s vital role in safeguarding endangered sea turtles and fostering marine conservation.

But the evening held more surprises in store. From interacting with an array of reptiles, including snakes and turtles, to witnessing a breathtaking demonstration featuring Liberty, the majestic bald eagle, the event was nothing short of outstanding. The evening was infused with a sense of wonder and discovery, as investors forged connections not only with each other but also with the awe-inspiring creatures that inhabit the Lowcountry.

The month wrapped up with an enriching event, “Coffee with the President,” where attendees had the opportunity to engage with fellow Leadership Circle investors and Bryan Derreberry, President and CEO of the Chamber. Coffee with the President events are always filled with stimulating discussions and networking opportunities, this particular edition held a unique engagement opportunity. Investors were offered an exclusive tour of Mankiewicz Coatings, providing a firsthand glimpse into the intricate processes and cutting-edge technologies that drive the company’s operations. It was a rare chance to witness innovation in action and gain deeper insights into the dynamics of a thriving business.
