HENDERSON, Nev. – Alex Raffi, creative director and partner for Imagine Communications, will present “Business Brainstorming with Creative Courage” during the Henderson Chamber of Commerce’s Roadmap to Success workshop from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Henderson Business Resource Center, located at 112 S. Water St. in downtown Henderson’ Water Street District.
