WHITINSVILLE, MA: Join the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce (BVCC) on the morning of Wednesday, November 16, 2022, for our 44th Annual Meeting & Awards Breakfast. Registration begins at 7:15 and our ambitious program starts at 8 AM. As is tradition, the meeting will be held at Pleasant Valley Country Club, 95 Armsby Road, Sutton. Pre-registration is required and the public is welcome to attend. We are proud to announce UniBank as our presenting sponsor.

The BVCC Annual Meeting & Awards Breakfast is always well attended and met with great anticipation as we recognize leadership from around our Blackstone Valley region with our special awards ceremony. Please visit to view this year’s award categories and to nominate a recipient.

This year’s keynote speaker is John Penrose, CEO of Leading Indicators Systems, Inc., and the Boston-based inventor of the revolutionary new tool that measures emotions, AgileBrain. This is a neuroscientific tool proven valuable when making hiring decisions and creating successful team members within your business. We all know from our own personal experiences, that emotions play a significant role in human behavior that affects our everyday lives, careers, and businesses. AgileBrain is able to pinpoint unmet emotional needs unlocking powerful insights for individuals, teams, and organizations. It takes just a quick 3-minute online test to make a determination. As an experiment, everyone who preregisters will receive a link to take an anonymous AgileBrain test. At the breakfast John will reveal an aggregate of the results.

“I am excited to present John Penrose as our keynote speaker this year! AgileBrain is a cutting-edge study that can be invaluable in finding the right employees to combat the “Great Resignation”. It is loosely based on the neuroscientific principle featured in the movie “Money Ball”. This is going to be a great interactive presentation,” said Jeannie Hebert, President and CEO of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce.
