Lois gave a speech from the Leadership Development Pathway, Level 2: Learning your style – Managing Time project titled “When is $10,000 worth more than $10,000?” Lois shared the story of the Star Wars Toy development and how not paying a contract for several years cost a major toy company a lot more than $10,000 a year to keep the rights to the “Intergalactic Empire” of Star Wars Toys.
Table Topics ran the gambit from Star Wars to Star Trek, favorite episodes to technology, and rebuttals too! Speakers were Matt, Aimee, Brandon, Lois, Greg and Jeanine. Lois won for her rebuttal of Brandon’s topic.
