Ethics in Leadership

I liked the questions the presenter asked, but the audience was too large for most people to feel comfortable participating. If she had us each talk to the person on our left and given us like 4 minutes to discuss it would've stimulated great conversation.

Extended Workshop- Walking Tour of Uptown Greenwood

4

I enjoyed the walking tour very much. Uptown Greenwood has a lot to offer. I would recommend the tour be done in the morning due to the heat and so that we saw more of the topiaries and main street prior to the other sessions. People that came and stayed the night before did see those as part of a scavenger hunt, so I understand the tour was last so that anyone that had already toured the city the night before could head home.
