Breakfast and Business - K/PACEDC style
Conversing between bites of food, businesspeople and leaders from across the county and state came together early in the morning on Wednesday, July 19 for the Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation annual countywide breakfast.
Marked with the theme “Collaborate: Building the Bridge Together,” over 150 breakfast goers learned about a winning business trifecta from Travis Toliver.

“Influence is huge,” remarked Toliver. “It is really all about being the example.” Gone are the days of leading through authoritarian tactics, mentioned Toliver. It simply does not work as well as leading by example.
