Women Entrepreneurs' Hour - Life + Leadership

  • The Schoolhouse 720 Magnolia Road Charleston, SC, 29407 United States (map)


The theme of the month is LEADERSHIP and we're bringing back one of your all-time favorite guests for Women Entrepreneurs' Hour.


Join us Tuesday, October 10th at the Schoolhouse for an enlightening chat about "Life + Leadership" with Jennifer Ferrebee of Verde Restaurants.


Many years ago, Jennifer and her husband Sam observed the need for a healthy, quick-service dining establishment in Charleston, so they began to dream up their plans for what is now “Verde” - a place where wholesome food and fast food weren’t mutually exclusive. For nearly two years the couple scouted the perfect space, finally settling on their first location at 347 King Street. On October 23, 2011, they opened the doors of Verde and haven’t looked back since.


Now with four locations in the Charleston metro area and over 70 employees, Jennifer has experienced first-hand the importance of developing strong leadership skills. And her life recently changed, when she and her husband Sam welcomed their very first baby into the world. In true form, Jennifer will share openly the joy and struggle of big life changes, leadership highs and lows, and how she's continuing to evolve and grow as a business owner.


We'll leave plenty of time for Q&A at the end of our chat, so bring your questions!
