“Behind the Scenes of a Bravolebrity.” — October Luncheon Review.
Join this group of professionals this month for an educational luncheon on legislative affairs and public relations.
Miramar Beach, Fla. (Nov 15, 2019) – On Tuesday, October 15, 2019 the Northwest Florida Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) hosted its monthly educational luncheon at Shaka Sushi and Noodle Bar in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Bravo TV reality star and South Walton local, Michael LeSure, discussed his path as an entrepreneur and how each person can change their mindset like he did to become the best version of themselves. The event was sponsored by White-Wilson Medical Center and welcomed 40 attendees to hear LeSure present.
“It was a privilege learning from Michael LeSure about his process in becoming a Bravolebrity and how that has shaped how he handles himself in all endeavors. We are looking forward to more educational luncheons such as this one where we can gather together as communications professionals and continue learning together.”
