Knoxville Chamber announces plans for second “Endeavor Summit”

Endeavor 2017The second annual “Endeavor Summit” is returning on September 15 at three venues along Depot Avenue in Knoxville’s Old City. Planned by a committee of young professional volunteers, the one-day experience is produced by the Knoxville Chamber and designed to empower the region’s emerging leaders to evolve their personal brand and elevate the community through collective development opportunities.

Keynote speakers for the day are Hallerin Hilton Hill, radio and television personality, and Chris “Bash” Bashinelli, host of Bridge the Gap featured on PBS and the National Geographic Channel.

Breakout session topics focus on “Launching Something New,” “Growing What You Got,” and “Why Knoxville is No. 1.” Attendees can choose from the multiple breakout session options, allowing for the creation of a custom schedule tailored to their individual goals. The day wraps with a networking happy hour featuring local music, craft brews, and food.

Each attendee also has the chance to participate in activities designed to inspire growth, engagement, and excitement. These include contributing to an on-site, service-to-go project; observing the work of a local muralist; connecting with over 600 peers and community leaders; utilizing a hacker lounge; and exploring non-profit and sponsor exhibits. Lunch features local restaurants and food trucks for an outdoor picnic, and DJs amplify the experience with music and entertainment.
