Name: George Griffiths

How long have you been a GLI Ambassador?

I have been a GLI Ambassador for several years. I can’t quite put a number to it, but I have been a member of GLI for approximately seventeen years.

What is your favorite part about being a GLI Ambassador?

Connecting with the new members and helping to make them feel welcomed and to let them know the Metro Chamber is here to help them grow and succeed in their business.

What value does your company derive from investing in GLI?

The value I receive is through networking and the opportunity to meet business leaders in the community.  I am then able understand some of the daily opportunities and challenges they face. Through knowledge of their issues, it helps me in bringing relevant and timely leadership development seminars and workshops to clients and prospective clients.

“Everything rises and falls on Leadership” – John C. Maxwell.

What’s the best investment you’ve ever made?

Investing in my personal and professional growth has got to be my best investment.  Having coaches and mentors can take you much further than you can go by yourself.

Outside the office, what do you like to do for fun?

I love to go to the movies with my wife and taking walks. I love sports and was a varsity soccer and track athlete in college. Now, however, I golf and watch college and professional sports, including soccer, football, basketball, and tennis.

Cats or Cards?

I am not from the area, but became a fan of Denny Crum from afar when he was coaching in the 70’s. So the short answer is Cards.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would you choose?

Muhammad Ali.
