As Northwest Indiana’s leading feature news provider, GreatNews.Life is pleased to launch the Leadership Life Series – an ongoing series of insightful video presentations featuring the state’s industry leaders in business, not-for-profit sectors, elected offices, and community advocacy.
The series will be published on GreatNews.Life's four online great news websites and corresponding social networks: NWI.Life, Valpo.Life, Portage.Life, and LaPorteCounty.Life, throughout the year.
“We have been honored to welcome Indiana’s thought and business leaders to the Great News studio, and to produce these features that showcase their successes, challenges, dreams, and priorities that are driving our communities forward,” said Chris Mahlmann, founder of GreatNews.Life and the Life Sites. “It will always be our priority to inform our readers and followers on the positive news topics that are most important to them. We can think of no better way than to connect the community with those who are working in the public and private sectors to grow our communities and pull them toward success.”
The upcoming Leadership Life Series will feature Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, local hospital CEOs, mayors, representatives from economic development and regional transportation organizations, academic and non-profit leaders, and more.
It is not the first time the Life Sites have taken the lead on producing Region-wide leadership news. Past leader productions have included mayoral summits, a Conversation with Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, a series with Region native and Indiana’s Secretary of Connections & Talent Blair Milo, a summit with broadcast journalism educators in the Region, and the incredibly popular mobile studio series “Life in the Streets” featuring leaders and Mahlmann driving the streets of Region while they chat.
“Our news crews are constantly canvasing the community for opportunities to feature positive, meaningful news for our readers, and the past leader productions have been some of our most popular and most engaging features,” said Jenny Craig-Brown, Executive Team Leader at GreatNews.Life. “Every week I’m connecting with community leaders who are eager to share their vision for the present and the future, and it is a pleasure to bring this news to our loyal readers and followers on an ongoing basis.”
The first 2019 Leadership Life Series compilation launches today (May 23) on NWI.Life and features Porter Health Care System Market CEO Sean Dardeau. Subsequent compilations will feature Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch; St. Mary Medical Center CEO Janice Ryba; Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority President and CEO Bill Hanna; La Porte Hospital CEO Ashley Dickinson; General Insurance Services President and CEO Craig Menne, and Account Executive Stephanie Domazet; Calumet College of St. Joseph President Dr. Amy McCormack, and Lakeside Wealth Management CEO Mark Chamberlain.
