YOUR PRESENTER – George Kleeb
Throughout my 28-year career in commercial banking, at the Nevada Small Business Development Center, and now teaching at Great Basin College, I love listening to business ideas. Business ideas need to be nurtured…so they can develop to their full potential! My goal is to teach critical thinking skills to my clients so they will be able to enjoy life – one that is always changing.
Life is like a Ferris Wheel, sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down…but you are not always up or not always down – you are constantly moving. Learn to enjoy the ride.
