Maine HR Convention: May 8 – 11, 2023


Maine Great Leader Series: Reimagine Your Leadership Potential – Leadership Maine

Tuesday, May 9th, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

Welcome to Year Ten of the Maine Great Leader Series, where we focus on leadership development within and outside the world of HR. This year, we pull back the curtain on the Maine Development Foundation and its range of initiatives connecting directly and indirectly with the HR community. MDF President and CEO Yellow Light Breen will share his leadership journey and the different kinds of mentors that paved the way for him. His goal is twofold: 1) to demonstrate the value of leading across communities and sectors, and 2) to encourage a strong community engagement role for HR, with its resulting rewards of professional development, employee engagement, and retention. A major focus of Yellow’s work involves comeback strategies for heritage Maine industries – forest products and marine living resources. He’ll discuss those programs and also will reference the iconic Leadership Maine (now entering its 30th year) and MDF’s Institute for Civic Leadership, MaineSpark, Realize Maine Network, and the Maine Downtown Center.
