Community-wide speaker series

Live | Learn | Lead

Our award-winning, thought leaders dinner event presents noted speakers addressing topics relevant to our community and region.

Open to the community – we engage business, nonprofit and civic leaders, LSS class members, alumni and residents in the discussion.


Thank you for joining the conversation. Leadership Sandy Springs LIVE | LEARN | LEAD Thought Leaders Dinner with Jonathan R. Parker was a great success. Nearly 150 business and civic leaders, LSS alumni and class members attended and feedback was overwhelmingly positive. 

Thanks also to our sponsors, especially presenting sponsor Kaiser Permanente, and Speaker Series Sponsor, The Roundtree Group. Jonathan Parker is the first Jan Paul Distinguished Speaker, honoring our past Executive Director for her commitment to Leadership Sandy Springs, our community and her vision for LIVE | LEARN | LEAD.
