The St. Louis Regional Chamber, Kiddie Academy, and Psychological Associates present the Voices of the Region speaker series. The series showcases some of the most celebrated and influential professionals that can be found in our own backyard.

Each speaker is a distinguished personality and thought leader on the subject matter. Each will share their unique experience and perspective on a variety of topics, from succession planning, living with technology, and business-to-business best practices.   You don’t want to miss this priceless experience as our speakers share anecdotal, “behind the headlines” stories from their unique perspective and answer your questions. Join us as we learn from the best voices in the region and inspire a greater St. Louis.
