20F Book Conversation
Please bring a business book that inspires you to our inaugural 20Fathoms Book Conversation!
Madison Ford, Ford Insurance, will guide us through a one-hour conversation. All participants will have the opportunity to share why their chosen book inspires them, how it has impacted their business and personal growth, and one takeaway they’d want people to leave with.
Conveniently, the event takes place right before the 20Fathoms Open House, so continue the book conversation while enjoying beer, wine, kombucha, and coffee!
