Mr. Heard spoke to the packed house about leadership and the power of networking.  He told the audience his secret to leadership and networking following the steps in the acronym L.E.A.D.E.R.S.H.I.P.

For L, he urged leaders to recognize other people and to be a good leader is to be a good listener.

For E, be enthusiastic and encourage people.  “Happiness is a choice,” Heard said.

For A, be accessible and take action.

Under D, be a delegator; to be a good leader one must be a good follower.

D, determine your goals.

Under E, education and effort— early in his career he volunteered for fire and safety and everything else he could learn.

For R, recognition and resilience. You don’t have to be number one. Train others to be number one. That’s the way to build a company.

For S, strength and strategy. Be the rock, be the leader of your family.

Under H, is honesty. Give back. Others helped him when he hit rock bottom in the early 1980s and you should help others.

For I, he listed influence, integrity and instinct. Successful people are not necessarily the most interesting, but the most interested people.

P stands for passion.

When discussing networking, “Ask yourself who can I connect with? Look out for others and keep up the hard work,” Heard said.

Outgoing Chamber chairwoman Barbara Phillips said she was anxious about becoming chairwoman last year until she realized she had a tremendous reservoir available to her through the Chamber staff, and a committed and capable board of directors and volunteers.  “We want the Chamber to be the very best it can be. 2016 was a great year for the Chamber,” she said.
