Cobb's Deputy County Manager Jackie McMorris to Speak at September Luncheon

Join us on Friday, September 13 for Cobb Executive Women's September Luncheon at The Georgian Club. This month, guest speaker Dr. Jackie McMorris, Deputy County Manager with Cobb County Government, will share “Everyone Communicates, Few Connect,” a presentation on developing the skill of connecting.

Dr. McMorris, a certified John Maxwell trainer, speaker and coach, values professional development and transformational leadership. At the upcoming luncheon, she will discuss John Maxwell's Five Principles and Five Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting from his book "Everyone Communicates, Few Connect”—and how anyone can learn to take everyday connections and transform them into impactful relationships.

Dr. McMorris’ governmental work experience includes over 15 years with the Cherokee County Government as the Agency Director for Community Services. She also served as the Chief of Staff for the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office before coming to Cobb as the Public Services Director in 2013. In October 2017, she became Cobb County’s first Deputy County Manager. She provides oversight in daily operations of the County, coordinates special events and external affairs, and is the county’s official lobbyist during the legislative session.

Registration for this event closes on Friday, September 6, and is $26 for Cobb Executive Women members and $36 for guests. The September Luncheon begins at 11:15 a.m. and is sponsored by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Kaiser Permanente.
