SPRINGFIELD, Mass., April 16, 2019 –  The YWCA of Western Massachusetts will be recognized for its 150th anniversary, and the law firm of Shatz, Schwartz and Fenton, along with Dakin Humane Society, will each be recognized for their 50th anniversaries at the Springfield Regional Chamber’s Rise & Shine Business Breakfast, May 1 at the Log Cabin. The breakfast will be held from 7:15-9 a.m.

Keynote speaker will be Robert Glazer, founder and CEO of Acceleration Partners, a global performance marketing agency, and the recipient of numerous industry and company culture awards, will talk about Lessons in Growth and Leadership

The Rise & Shine Business Breakfast series sponsor is United Personnel. Coffee Bar sponsor is Employers Association of the NorthEast.

Glazer’s presentation will define how to become a more authentic leader, how to build a bigger capacity for growth and achievement, and teach attendees to unlock success in themselves and others.

In 2011, Glazer began to e-mail his team every Friday with a leadership theme, quote and tip related to personal growth. The response was overwhelmingly positive and now employees look forward to it each Friday and forward it regularly to family and friends. The weekly newsletter now has a global reach that extends to over 100,000 people in 50 countries on six continents.

Glazer is the author of the international bestselling book “Performance Partnerships,” hosts the Elevate Podcast, and his latest book “Elevate” will be released in October of 2019. Glazer frequently writes articles for business publications such as Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, and Thrive Global, and has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show. Acceleration Partners has been awarded Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards two years in a row, and The Boston Globe’s “Top Places to Work” in Massachusetts in 2018.
