Postponed – In Good Company
A monthly social hour at Company House Hotel celebrating entrepreneurial local leaders held on the last Tuesday each month.
Inspired by the hotel’s history as a hub for entrepreneurs and leaders, “In Good Company” is a series of conversations featuring local leaders. These special events bring together guests, community members, entrepreneurs and those interested in learning, the sharing of ideas, learning experiences, discussing challenges, connecting with each other, and celebrating each other’s successes.
