After a successful launch earlier this year, the team at Al Biernat’s has announced the return of its CEO Spotlight Breakfast Speaker Series.
Real estate mogul Lucy Billingsley will kick off the program as a guest speaker at the North location on Thursday, Sept. 12, followed by fellow esteemed real estate developer Michael Ablon on Thursday, Oct. 24.
David Johnson of KRLD 1080 will be back again to moderate panel discussions at both events.
The programs run from 7 to 8 a.m. and cost $50 per person.
In addition to networking with fellow enthusiasts, an assortment of Al Biernat’s fare will be served as passed items or at a buffet station.
The speaking engagement typically lasts between 30 to 45 minutes and is followed by a short Q&A session and a raffle drawing where the lucky winner will receive a business lunch for four at the restaurant.
“We are excited to continue our networking and breakfast series at the Spring Valley location, said Brad Fuller, director of operations. “I can’t wait to hear the insight that both of our Fall speakers have concerning the current growth and development of the Dallas area.”
Billingsley started Billingsley Company in 1978 alongside Henry Billingsley. From raw land to master-planned corporate parks and multifamily neighborhoods, they are involved in every step of design, instruction, leasing, and management.
International Business Park, Austin Ranch, Cypress Waters, and the Arts Plaza campus in Dallas’ Arts District are just some of their projects.

One of Ablon’s most noteworthy projects: redeveloping the Dallas Design District into a vibrant neighborhood.
