ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR News) – Leadership Bedford stepped on the set of WFXR News.

Nine of sixteen leadership students currently in the program were able to create business pitch clips in the studio.

This is one of many outings designed to increase leadership skills for existing and emerging leaders in the Bedford area. The program occurs every other year and lasts around 6 months with 10 classes and various interactive leadership activities.

The group is currently working with Minnick Enterprises and the John Maxwell team, implementing certified Maxwell DISC methods.

When Bedford Leadership student Melissa Meador was asked what she has gained from the program, she said…

Self-awareness, self-confidence, and certainly partnerships and just getting to be a leader that is wanting to develop more and be successful.

A standout aspect of this program is that it is inclusive.

This program is for anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter what age you are. We can take anyone from basically eighteen and up to retirement. That’s what’s exciting about it because it doesn’t matter what age you are, you can always improve your leadership skills, right?

Wende Gaylor, Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce CEO

WFXR is proud to be a part of Bedford Leadership’s class of 2020’s journey to continued success.
