Steve Gilliland is one of the nation’s most well-known motivational speakers

A nationally renowned speaker, comedian and master storyteller, Steve Gilliland, will keynote the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce Small Business Luncheon May 2 at The Peninsula Club.

The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., also includes Mike Mooney, a reputation and crisis management expert, as well as Mike Griffin, an entrepreneur who was the 2018 Lake Norman Chamber Business Person of the Year.

Gilliland is a business superstar, addressing more than 250,000 people a year across literally dozens of industries in all 50 states and in 15 countries.

An entrepreneur himself, Gilliland built a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up.

The business philosophy he espouses—If you continually learn more about

your company, your industry, your customer and yourself, you will always be a leader—plays into a more purpose-driven existence than process-driven.

“If you take care of people, the business will follow,” he says. Gilliland has been recognized by “Who’s Who for Speakers and Business Professionals,” as well as a variety of business publications.

Griffin, managing partner of Cornelius-based Griffin Brothers Cos., will share the story behind ZoomUp, a company focusing on “zooming” reputable, well-tenured businesses with young entrepreneurs at the helm.

Mooney is a reputation and crisis management expert whose topic is “What is your Reputation Worth?”

A preferred seating package of $35 includes lunch and a copy of Mooney’s book, “Reputation Shift.”

The chamber event is emceed by Joe Vagnone with Enlign Business Brokers.
