By Kailyn Lamb, Marketing Content Writer and Editor, PYA

The Knoxville Chamber’s Endeavor Summit for young professionals is returning to an in-person format this year. The annual event enables emerging leaders to network with others in the community and learn from local speakers. This year, the summit is being held at Bridgewater Place on October 6.

The event kicks off with breakfast at 8 a.m. followed by opening remarks at 9 a.m. by Lina Kornmeyer, a Market Executive with Bank of America, the Chamber’s presenting sponsor for the Endeavor Summit.

There are three breakout sessions throughout the day. The three panels are the same each time, allowing attendees to participate in each. Sessions are at 9:45 a.m., 12:30, and 2 p.m. The panels include:

A second networking session will happen during lunch at 11 a.m. The keynote talk is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. with Adam Ragusea, a YouTuber with a focus on recipes, food science, and culinary culture. Ragusea recently moved to Knoxville and will talk about his experience transitioning to the city, as well as insights on finding your passion and the importance of creativity.

After the keynote, attendees will vote on which nonprofit will receive a grant from United Way of Greater Knoxville. The Chamber set aside 10 percent of ticket sales, which will be combined with additional funding from United Way.

The summit ends with a happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m.
