Strength & Service Series: Book Launch with Héctor Colón

Date: Wednesday, December 2, 2020
Time: 1–2 p.m. EST

Far more than a business memoir, “From Boxing Ring to Boardroom: 5 Essential Virtues for Life and Leadership” follows Héctor Colón from his challenged childhood through his international success in boxing, up to his current position as President and CEO of Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, Inc. (LSS), one of the Midwest’s largest nonprofit organizations.

Under Héctor’s visionary servant leadership, LSS has adapted new models and business strategies to increase relevance and operational efficiency. Over his past three years leading the organization, LSS has seen tremendous organizational success, to include multi-million dollar surpluses with a gain of $2.4 million in 2019. He was also recently named Nonprofit Executive of the Year by BizTimes Media and Hispanic Man of the year by UMOS.  

During this webinar, you will hear directly from Héctor as he walks us through his inspirational story. Héctor will cover how he overcame adversity to achieve personal and professional success as an international boxer and as a nonprofit leader, and will also share his five essential virtues for personal and professional growth – magnanimity, humility, courage, perseverance, and temperance. If you would like more information about Héctor, or would like to order his book, “From Boxing Ring to Boardroom: 5 Essential Virtues for Life and Leadership,” please visit his website

Registration will be limited to 100 participants.
