The Dubuque Area Chamber of Commerce presents Power Hour, a program held monthly, September through June, for the area’s top business and community leaders. Business owners, C-Suites, and Presidents, this is your opportunity to network with colleagues and peers, while gaining valuable insight from informative presentations on today's hottest news topics. Join us the last Thursday of the month from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and start your day with information that impacts.

Our December topic is "Victory is a Marathon", presented by Matt Jones, founder of the R.E.A.L. Leadership Academy and was a PhD Candidate in Organizational Leadership. He is the author of over ten books, including his newest one, “Happiness is a Marathon: 26.2 Ways to Stay Happy at Work and in Life.

Matt Jones, went from being a three-time cancer conqueror, to relearning how to walk, to surviving a bone marrow transplant, to completing seven marathons on seven continents and yes that includes Antarctica!

Matt was diagnosed with cancer on September 11, 2002. After spreading to the fluid in his brain doctors did not think he would live. At one point, Matt would slip into an unconscious state. Doctors did not think he would live. Against all he recovered but due to complications in his brain he had to relearn how to walk.

From the first step, he took after relearning how to walk, Matt visualized completing a marathon. His first marathon was the San Diego Rock N’ Roll. Followed by completing marathons in Rome, Tokyo, Perth, Cape Town, Antarctica, and Chile.

Matt uses his story of overcoming insurmountable odds to motivate audiences to achieve greater victory during these times of change and uncertainty. For more information about Matt Jones please visit his website at www.MatthewDJones.com.
