Like many other companies, CTQ’s staff gets together Friday afternoons before leaving for the weekend. Conversations typically range from professional to personal; but, what if there was something more we could bring to the mix? In 2015, CTQ decided that the typical Friday afternoon get-togethers could have more meaning, provide more comradery and team building.
From that very idea, the “Eternally Interesting” series was born.
The Eternally Interesting series are hour long, bi-monthly presentations where CTQ invites clients, associates and friends to share their passions on business, finances, personal growth as well as some of their amazing life experiences.
In addition to inviting our distinguished presenters, CTQ invites local wineries, breweries or distilleries to provide tastings and information on their business and products. Along with the beverages, we also featured delicious and amazing local foods to enliven one’s taste buds while listening to the featured speakers.
In this section you will find summaries of the Eternally Interesting presentations.
