Be Inspired. Get Connected.


Executive Leadership Series - Regent University

Join us each month at The Founders Inn and Spa for Regent University's Executive Leadership Series (ELS). This series of luncheons brings together leaders and aspiring leaders for teaching and inspiration from some of today's most intriguing, innovative and influential men and women around the world.

He speaks to hundreds of thousands of people on a variety of topics; and is featured regularly on national television shows and cable news networks.
