It Starts with You

JW Marriott

Leadership is not about you, but it starts with you! Therefore, if you ever want to be a great leader of others, you must first be a great leader of yourself! This highly interactive program has leaders explore who they are at their best, the #1 trait that holds all leaders back, and how their presence builds or erodes trust and connection in their relationships. This program will challenge participants to look at themselves differently, and it will change how they lead and communicate in every part of their life.


Annual Legal Update – Ron Gardner

JW Marriott


A lawyer walks into a bar…

Inflation, remodels, technology, and new LT members!  The already fast-paced world of the KFC franchisee has been turned upside down again this year with changes coming faster than Ron’s one-liners!  And while this session can have its moments of amusement, no one gives AKFCF members more critical information than AKFCF/NCAC General Counsel Ron Gardner.  Please plan on attending this “red badge only” event to get the latest on what is happening now and how to prepare your business for all that 2023 has in store.
