The Pryor Center for Leadership Development at William Jewell College is hosting Lunch & Leadership Lesson events from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 26 and Friday, April 9. The March 26 event is at Indian Hills Country Club, 6847 Tomahawk Road, Mission Hills, Kan.; the April 9 event is at the Webster House at 1644 Wyandotte, Kansas City, Mo. The events are open to the public and registration is required. The cost is $35 per person and includes lunch.
Mary B. Lucas, author of Lunchmeat & Life Lessons: Sharing a Butcher’s Wisdom, is the guest speaker for both Lunch & Leadership Lesson sessions. Her uplifting presentation focuses on ways to enhance leadership effectiveness. Lucas combines contemporary leadership best practices with grass roots wisdom borrowed from her father, John Bichelmeyer, whom Lucas describes as “a great leadership coach, and the smartest man I ever knew.” Bichelmeyer, a butcher by trade, is the subject of Lucas’ best-selling book, Lunchmeat & Life Lessons: Sharing a Butcher’s Wisdom.

A portion of the proceeds realized as a result of these events will be donated to the American Heart Association Tribute Site www.HeartsWeLeaveBehind.com. To register, go to www.pryorcenter.org or call The Pryor Center for Leadership Development at 816-415-5052.
