Hank Kelley: featured keynote speaker

Arkansas Business Executive Leadership Academy

Hank Kelley joins Scott Ford, Myron Jackson, Marta Loyd, and Darrin Williams as a keynote speaker at the Arkansas Business Executive Leadership Academy Spring 2021 Program. The five-session program is designed to encourage personal development and professional growth for the state’s emerging business and nonprofit leaders. Participants will benefit from personal and professional strength assessments, on-on-one coaching, and mentoring from some of the state’s top CEOs and nonprofit executives.

Kelley will be the featured speaker for the April 16 session. Having led the company through a recent ownership and name change, he will share his expertise on “Leading through Organizational Change.” In May 2020, Kelley finalized an amicable stock purchase from former partner John Flake and the firm was renamed Kelley Commercial Partners.

Applications for the Spring 2021 sessions must be completed by February 22. The first session will be held March 5 and the final session on April 30.

High Cotton Decor now open at The Shoppes at Rodney Parham

Dani and Tim Martin

The Shoppes at Rodney Parham in West Little Rock welcomes High Cotton Decor, a charming, family-run store that specializes in unique home decor and handcrafted gifts. Owners, Dani and Tim Martin opened this WLR location to operate as a “sister-store” to The Cotton Shed Vintage Market, a 32,000 SF store in Bryant that hosts more than 200 local vendors from all over the state. High Cotton has high standards, which is why Ms. Martin says she sources most of the merchandise in her store from local artists and vendors, seeking out southern makers as well as items that support the fight to end human trafficking.
