What our grads are saying
“Shakopee Leadership was a great way to quickly get connected to the community in Shakopee. The tours of the local businesses were interesting and informative. The people we got to meet along the way and the tight group we formed in leadership will be lasting for years to come.”
Nick Christoffer Business Performance Advisor
