Join us for the August monthly chapter meeting of ESOA Fort Myers as we host an in-depth look at what it takes to go from startup to sale with Brandon G. Phillips, President of Global HR Research (GHRR). 

Brandon will share his journey from his father's untimely passing when he was just three years old, to becoming founder of a startup by his late 20’s, and ultimately, President of Global HR Research (www.GHRR.com).

Brandon overcame significant barriers early in life, but through the support of his family and pure “Grit & Perseverance” he has pushed forward. His message to entrepreneurs is that with a strong commitment to your passion, anything is possible, and his story is a testament to how anyone can succeed.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn from Brandon, who may be just a few steps ahead of your own entrepreneurial journey. Understand what keeps him up at night, how a startup impacted his family life, how to find talent in SWFL, among many other topics. All will be on the table so come armed with your questions and an open mind.
