Weekend in Boca Symposium Attracts Nonprofit Audience

Every year, representatives of a wide range of nonprofit organizations throughout South Florida and beyond gather for a full day of education and inspiration at the annual Office Depot Foundation Weekend in Boca Civil Society Leadership Symposium. The program brings together distinguished speakers as well as participants from across the United States. The theme of the 2016 Weekend in Boca Symposium, which took place on November 11 at Office Depot Headquarters in Boca Raton, was “Building Community: Strategies for Making a Difference.” Speakers included Mike Michalowicz, author of Author of Surge, Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, and strategic storytelling expert Andy Henriquez. Said one exuberant participant, “This was the third Weekend in Boca I’ve attended and each time it is full of inspiration and uplifting conversations with people who are passionate about their cause. It is humbling to be in the company of such dedicated individuals.”
