Lead North Central Florida

Lead North Central Florida (Lead NCF) is a one-year business leadership training program
presented by James Moore and Velocity Advisory Group.

What Does Leadership in the 21st Century Look Like?

The rapid expansion of technology, research, and communication is creating opportunities for business and leadership development that didn’t exist 50 years ago. But opportunity increases competition and expectations, forcing leaders to master new challenges, take more risk and make decisions under extreme uncertainty.

Lead NCF is a cutting-edge leadership development program for those who want to be at the top of their game and drive real business value by developing the financial, strategic and risk management skills needed to manage and run a company. The program will equip participants with the knowledge and tools they need to take over the reins – or advance to the next level of their careers. Bi-monthly training modules are conducted followed by ongoing support and guidance to help participants learn valuable skills and to assist them with putting into practice what they’ve learned. Six training modules will cover leadership, process excellence, finance, value, business risk, and strategy.
