Today more than 600 business leaders from the Mooresville-South Iredell County Chamber of Commerce gathered at The Cove church to celebrate another great year of success stories. The chamber introduced the new chair Howard Kososky, and the 2014 board members.
The luncheon also served as a chance to celebrate some particular business leaders and citizens making a huge difference in the lives of people living in the area.
The message today was "The Business of Staying Connected". A point brought home by today's keynote speaker, CEO of The Discovery Channels Bill Goodwyn. He spends a good deal of his time working with educators across the country. The Discovery channel is used in classrooms that serve 25 million students across America. He highlighted the Mooresville school district for its innovation and use of technology in schools. He pointed out, "I speak to school leaders and they want to go from zero to Mooresville, your success has been noticed," Goodwyn said.
Chamber President Kirk Ballard encouraged business leaders to use the resources of social media as a new outlet for marketing their products and services. He highlight the success of social interactions being more than just a handshake, although, the human touch, he said is always important.
