Keynote Speaker Luncheons Series

Creating high-value relationships through educational networking opportunities

GLO CPAs is proud to offer a variety of events for continuing education and networking. We strive to create high-value relationships not only through our business ventures, but also through quality face to face interaction with other like-minded professionals and informative talks by speakers from a variety of topics and backgrounds. We highlight industry leaders and outstanding individuals through our monthly Keynote Speaker Luncheon Series and our weekly Lunch and Learn programs. Guests are able to join us for lunch and the opportunity to meet, network, and learn together with us in our conference room, or at the beautiful Junior League of Houston.

For over 15 years, GLO has been holding monthly luncheons at the Junior League at Houston with speakers from an enormous variety of backgrounds: Mayor Annalise Parker, Former director of the FDIC William Sherrill, University of Houston’s President Dr. Renu Khator, and many more! We strive to highlight some of the most fascinating and informative topics while providing an opportunity to sit alongside business professionals from all over Houston for networking and a delicious meal.

Keynote Speaker Luncheons are typically attended by a crowd of 30-60 people and are located at the beautiful Junior League of Houston.

GLO Lunch and Learns

For a much more intimate setting, a GLO Lunch and Learn may be right up your alley. Just like our Keynote Speaker Luncheons, we feature industry leaders and professionals from across the board to speak for 15-20 guests. Lunch and learns provide a much more intimate setting where you can network and visit in our conference room while lunch is provided. Lunch and Learns provide a chance to get up close and personal with the speaker and guest alike, and allow for more guest questions and discussion. While they are more "round table" in essence, lunch and learns are a wonderful way to spend a lunch break surrounded by bright minds and bright ideas!

More Lunch and Learns Coming Soon!
