C la r io n Pa r t n e r sh ip f o r Gr o w t h CPG News November 09 Clarion Partnership for Growth Annual Meeting Thursday, November 19th Clarmond Country Club Featuring Special Guest Speaker *Deadra Stanton 5:30- Social 6:00- Dinner *Don't Shoot Skinny Rabbits Deadra Stanton, Creative Communications, Mason City, Iowa Before we can grow professionally, we need to learn to survive personally. As the pace of change quickens every day, we sometimes end up chasing too many skinny rabbits. When we do this we lose our energy and our focus on what's really impor- tant. Coming from an "in the trenches" perspective, Ms. Stanton draws on real life exam- ples and humor to reaffirm that your choices in life are good ones. Plan on leaving this presentation with many new ideas, a revitalized sense of self, and NO SKINNY RABBITS! Don’t forget to make your reservations! It’s going to be a great evening!
