The Miami Beach Chamber’s Emerging Leadership Committee (ELC) hosted its 3rd Annual Champions of Business Luncheon in the Peacock Foundation Inc. Studio on Thursday, July 9.

Guests were invited to arrive early for a behind-the-scenes tour and then more than 100 guests from a variety of business backgrounds networked and enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Barton G Performing Arts Catering, while they listened to three featured Miami business leaders share insight and personal stories about how they became successful in their respective field.

This year’s panelists included Peggy Hollander of The Succession Group, Barton G. Weiss of Barton G. and Jill Hertzberg of The Jills Real Estate Company. The luncheon was moderated by Jason Beukema of Whet Travel and Vanessa Hauc of Telemundo. After the panel discussion, there was a short Q & A between panelists and guests, followed by a fun door prize drawing and then more networking long after the luncheon ended.

“I am so excited to have the Adrienne Arsht Center as our venue for the third annual Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Champions of Business Luncheon. The Adrienne Arsht Center is not only a valued member of the Miami Beach Chamber but also the cornerstone of the arts and cultural community here in South Florida. As a frequent visitor and a long-standing volunteer of the Center, I feel great pride in bringing our event to this venue and for being able to show first-time visitors this world-class performing arts center,” said Jason Hagopian, chair of ELC.
