Founder of commercial cleaning franchise system will share his ‘lessons from leadership’
Todd Hopkins, the founder and CEO of Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Franchise, will be in the lineup of inspiring motivational speakers at the 2014 MidSouth Economic and Business Development Summit.
The eighth annual summit will provide a day of development for area business, government and university leaders as they learn more about executive leadership strategies. The leadership conference is May 13 at Discovery Park of America in Union City, Tenn.
“I’m going to share leadership lessons I’ve learned in the trenches of entrepreneurship,” says Todd, who founded Office Pride while earning his master’s degree at Butler University in Indianapolis in 1992. “I plan to talk about things like establishing trust and creating a high-trust organization, and about the value of viewing life and business from a positive perspective, seeing the glass half-full instead of half-empty.
“It’s important to understand why, as a leader, people follow you. The more we understand, the more it helps us to be better leaders.”
Todd is a graduate of Dyersburg State Community College, which is one of the sponsors of the summit, along with the Tennessee Small Business Development Network, the SBA and the University of Tennessee-Martin.
Our years of commercial cleaning franchise experience have helped make us an innovator in the industry under Todd’s leadership. He is a member of the Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) Board of Directors and recently attended the annual global conference of the World Federation of Building Service Contractors in New York City.
