Let's Celebrate Entrepreneurship
INSPIRATION × Celebration × JUBILATION
the winners of the second annual level up growth competition will be announced on june 3rd at the nevada museum of art. the evening will not only celebrate their entrepreneurial success but also feature internationally acclaimed speaker, sandy gallagher.
As an esteemed attorney with a successful career in banking law, Sandy regularly handled billions of dollars in mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, and other big-ticket transactions, and was an advisor to boards and top executives of Fortune 500 firms. She epitomized success in the classic corporate mold.
Yet an encounter with Bob Proctor set Sandy on an extraordinary new path — one that would ultimately change not only her life, but countless others.
Through Bob’s teachings, Sandy finally understood the “why” behind her lifelong success. Without realizing it, she had spent her life practicing the very principles Bob espoused, and exemplifying their power. She knew then that her next mission in life was to teach others how to do what she had done. And she became determined to join forces with Bob in order to fulfill that mission.
Today, as the co-founder, CEO, and President of the Proctor Gallagher Institute, Sandy shares international speaking stages with Bob and works closely with him and their team of professionals to provide coaching, training, and consulting.
Small business changes the world.
Level up 2016 was an ultimate success.
