Bell Leadership Taking Applications for 24th Year of the Leader's Roundtable, Celebrating 45th Anniversary of Bell Leadership

Chapel Hill, NC – June 15, 2016 Bell Leadership Institute, a recognized leader in leadership training and executive development, is now accepting applications for the 2017 Leader’s Roundtable. Next year marks the 45th anniversary of Bell Leadership Institute, as well as the 24th year of The Leader’s Roundtable, an elite members-only group.

Dr. Gerald D. Bell, Founder and CEO of Bell Leadership Institute, has earned the reputation as one of the highest-rated resources on leadership in the United States and around the globe. Through many years of cross-industry experience, Dr. Bell has designed this unique and exclusive program to develop the specific leadership skills of CEOs, presidents, and senior officers. This is a rare professional opportunity to work and learn from a group of peers outside a particular business or industry. During each meeting, Dr. Bell presents key advanced leadership concepts; the group then works together to analyze their own business cases and apply to their own companies the leadership principles they’ve just learned.

Edward V. Welch, Jr., President and CEO of Welch Hornsby, a 2013 and 2015 Leader’s Roundtable graduate, feels that his experience has already had a positive impact on him and his company.  Welch Hornsby is a registered investment advisory firm with the mission to build and preserve the wealth of individuals and families, endowments and foundations, and participant-directed retirement plans for corporations and municipalities. Founded in 1988, the firm is headquartered in Montgomery with offices in Birmingham, Alabama, and Charlotte, North Carolina. Edward first attended Bell Leadership’s Achievers and Great Leaders seminars in Chapel Hill as part of Bell’s Leadership Mastery Series.  He quickly applied for the year-long Leader’s Roundtable and applied the concepts and principles he learned each month towards building himself and his team.  Edward says about Roundtable, “The Leader’s Roundtable has been nothing short of transformational for me personally and I believe for my firm as well.  Dr. Bell is a gifted communicator equipped with his own extensive research on leadership which makes for a unique and enjoyable combination. My entire experience was enlightening and challenging.  Moreover, I made friends for life with participants from very different industries and walks of life.  The total return on investment has been extraordinary.”

Edward and his fellow alumni will have the opportunity to reconnect with one another and Dr. Bell at the annual Leader’s Roundtable Alumni Reunion on September 22, 2016, at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
