The Lucas County Library is hosting the Community Leadership Series on Jan. 30 in the main library at 11:30 am. The speaker at this event will be Chrys Peterson, a leadership and communications consultant.
The Community Leadership series is sponsored by Leadership Toledo, KeyBank, First Energy Foundation and The Andersons, and looks to put a spotlight on great organizations and more specifically their leaders. The main way of showing this is by having guest speaker events.

Peterson was the main news anchor for WTOL for 20 years before starting her own consulting business in 2014. Peterson was also invited to be a consulting partner at Blanchard, a leadership training company considered to be one of the best in the world.
