Third Draft's initial meeting Monday

Jim Griffiths is introducing a project that he hopes will incorporate a life-skills class into the school system. As opposed to charity, donations or fund raisers, this luncheon will be a self-funding project. While people enjoy a buffet lunch from the Lobster Lady, Ceno Grill and Jets Pizza, the first meeting on June 5 will feature speaker Dennis Kunkler, president of the Cape Coral Toastmasters and an expert in "Positioning and Branding."

Throughout his four-decade design career, he has worked on numerous projects and recently authored, "The Book On Branding Must Know Brand Secrets To Make Your Business Stand Out In Any Market."

The Third Draft monthly business luncheons are held at the VFW Post 8463, 4709 S.E. 11th Place, in downtown

Cape Coral on the first Monday of the month starting June 5. The luncheons will offer an educational meeting with professional speakers to bring a better understanding to the term entrepreneurism.

Luncheon cost is free to first time attendees and $40 per person for future meetings.

In July, guest Ron Frost, a Sarasota speaker and author of the book "Getting Unstuck," will talk about why most people are actually afraid of success.
