“The Talent Magnet Institute is excited to launch this new program with the NKYP to provide our next generation of leaders across the region with an opportunity to elevate and further develop their skills,” said Mike Sipple, Jr., President of Centennial, and Co-Founder and CEO of Talent Magnet Institute. “This program will provide young professionals with the tools and support needed to become growth-minded leaders with a desire to be proactive in the way they develop, build and attract other talent, or become ‘talent magnets’, for their organizations.”
