Want to know what inspires the chief of police in North Charleston? What about the preferred reading for the SBA’s entrepreneur of the year? Or maybe where a local nonprofit organizer looks for inspiration?
We had all these questions, and a lot more, so we asked a dozen local business executives and community leaders to serve on a series of panels during a one-hour event held Thursday at the Charleston Marriott.
To prepare for the event, we asked these leaders for their suggestions for personal and professional inspiration, be it a book, a film or something else that inspires. Today, we wanted to offer up the suggestions they shared, and please comment below if you have a must-read or must-see of your own.
