Meet our guest speaker
Market President & Publisher of the Milwaukee Business Journal
Kira Lafond, Market President and Publisher of Milwaukee Business Journal, oversees a team of talented professionals who work every day to help their readers grow their businesses, advance their careers and simplify their professional lives. Her passion is connecting smart hard-working people in our city with others they should know.
Kira achieved her dream job and became publisher in June of 2016 after serving as the Milwaukee Business Journal’s Director of Advertising for two years and serving many years in radio sales and management. Just a few months into her role as publisher she suffered sudden sensorineural hearing loss in her right ear and after months of testing, trials, insurance battles, planes, trains and automobiles in December of 2017 she received a cochlear implant through a medical study for single sided deafness in adults.
Kira will share a bit about her journey and why she is thankful for the work HEAR Wisconsin does to eliminate communication and language barriers through personalized services, technology and education.
