NEXUS Leadership Experience

The need to encourage and equip the next generation of community leaders in Memphis is obvious to those who know our city best. To meet this demand, our young leaders need a place where they can learn proven leadership skills in a mutually challenging environment from top-flight coaches and mentors. Such a place is now available in Memphis. It is called NEXUS: A Proven Experience in Leadership.

Founded in 2003, NEXUS is a vehicle for the development and improvement of leadership skills, as well as a means for participants to make valuable connections with leaders in the Memphis community. Relationship is the key component of the NEXUS experience. NEXUS is unique in that it seeks to duplicate the experienced leader and develop the young, emerging leader through mentorship and relationship.

Testimonials

 “I felt like I got a renewed passion for our city.  So many of the speakers really celebrated the great benefits Memphis has to offer as well as our unique culture and resources.  Additionally, I got a chance to network with several different professionals in various careers, which was a great opportunity for me. As a teacher, I usually only network with others in education.  I really appreciated the opportunity to see that the same tough decisions and issues that I face as an educator also face others in various fields.”
