Each class includes a "community conversation" with a panel of local leaders on various subjects.
Some of the keynote speakers for the Leadership Sidney program include Pastor Dustin Morgan, Sidney Assembly of God, with a message on instilling personal values into your daily life, Chantel Schieffer, True North Leadership with a session on effective communication and Nick Lonski, Edward Jones, presenting on learning agility.
