"There really is a guy named Shawn O’Donnell! The proud grandson of Irish immigrants. I grew up in Mountlake Terrace and first dove into the restaurant business when I opened a 48-seat sandwich shop, in Terrace, called “The Lunch Box” in 1982. Just 22 years old with not much money, I am not sure how we did it, but with some help from family and friends, somehow we made it work."

 Thanks to our generous sponsor, Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, LSC is able to offer this opportunity to our alumni at no charge. Space is limited and we often have a waiting list, so please note that if you RSVP and can’t make it, you must cancel within 12 hours of the event or you’ll be charged $15 for your lunch. 

Leadership Snohomish County's Lunch With a Leader series is designed to benefit all LSC alumni. Conversations are organic and alumni-led.

Lunch with a Leader: Amy King Owner & CEO of Pallet

Leadership Snohomish County is excited to have Amy King, owner and CEO of Pallet, present in our Lunch with a Leader Series. Please join us in conversation and community building with Amy.

Amy King is the owner and CEO of Pallet, a Social Purpose Corporation striving to improve the human condition while also being a successful and profitable company. Through several market segments, Pallet prevents and reduces homelessness of those who find themselves in transition due to disaster, homelessness, or work force housing.  This is done both through the high-quality shelters that they build in Everett, Washington and the invaluable people who produce them. They are second-chance friendly; hiring and investing in people actively engaged in recovery and reintegration from addiction, homelessness and incarceration.

Amy and her husband, Brady King, started Square Peg Development in 2014 and skilled labor shortages led them to hire previously incarcerated individuals. As they heard the stories and struggles of their employees, they became passionate about removing barriers to re-entry and sought to provide an opportunity to more individuals in transition. They currently employ 50+ individuals, 90% of which have a history of incarceration, addiction, and/or homelessness. In 2016, they founded Weld Seattle, a non-profit corporation geared toward removing barriers to employment, housing and supportive community for individuals actively engaged in re-entry. Amy has a degree in Psychology and spent most of her career in Healthcare Administration, with a focus on managing large surgical practices. This business experience prepared her for the opportunity of owning and operating her current companies while fulfilling her dream of working for a company that is both people focused and profitable.

Workshop: Talking About Our Generations

Communicating across generations in the workplace

 For the first time in U.S. history, there are four distinct generations in our workforce. Each generation brings its own background, culture, understanding and biases to work based on the period in which those people were raised and the prior generation that taught them. Join Leadership Snohomish County for a hands-on, half-day workshop to improve your skills at communicating across generations in the workplace. Local facilitator Reneé Huseby will guide a 2.5-hour session that will enrich your understanding of generational differences and provide tactics for building teams, managing employees or simply improving your interaction with all co-workers.

REGISTER HERE

Session is limited to 25 participants. Tickets are $99 per person ($79 per person for LSC alumni)

Time: 9:00-11:30 AM

Location - Edmonds Community College, Gateway Building, 6600 196th St. SW
