    Theresa Zawlocki 

    We are thrilled to have Theresa Zawlocki, Festival Foods Associate Development Director, coming all the way from Festival Foods Corporate, in De Pere, Wisconsin to speak to us on Mental Mindset. Theresa speaks to thousands on a corporate level and delivers a message with an impact.


    Success isn't about knowing the right people, or being in the right place at the right time. It's about knowing yourself and being intentional. We are where we are because of who we are. Theresa will share the importance of focusing on mental mindset for transforming how you live and lead.


    For this special occasion, we will be meeting at the Festival Foods Support Office and we will be having our lunch catered by Blue Moon.


    Seating will be limited so reserve your spot today by registering in the section above.


    Come and join us at the Festival Foods Support Office special off-site luncheon on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. Feel free to park anywhere in the parking lot.
