PENSACOLA, FL–(Marketwired – February 18, 2016) – Pensacola Business Radio hosted a special episode to spotlight Women in Leadership. Host Keith Hoffert sat down with Kolleen Chesley, Founder and Co-Director of Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast.
Chesley was present to kick off the new series of Women in Leadership, “We all rise or we all sink,” she said as a charge for the series. Joining her in the studio was Amie Remington, General Counsel of Landrum Human Resource Companies, Inc., which consists of Landrum Companies, Inc., Landrum Professional Employer Services, Inc., Landrum Consulting, and Landrum Staffing Services. Combined, these companies serve over 600 clients and 10,000 employees.
Also in the studio was Barbara Barber, owner of East Hill Academy, a school that focuses on educating children grades 1-12 with autism and other related disorders. Barber is a successful business owner that has grown her business to a location in Pensacola, Milton and opening a Century location this year. East Hill Academy was awarded an IMPACT grant last year to expand their Pensacola location to accommodate even more students, and they continue to operate with a waiting list of students wanting to get into their schools.
Joining in the discussion was Kim Hannan, a visual artist and a corporate team-building consultant with a specialty in staffing and personnel strategies. With over 30 years of team building experience in both the corporate and volunteer worlds, she embraces and teaches the value of communicating a clear message of goals and culture to a team, then leading from a servant-leader position, always seeking to facilitate the achievement of team initiatives.
