We are all so proud of our employee owners and how engaged they can be. But sometimes, there are things that can only be handled at the top. Our new Chief Executive Series is designed for those in our most important leadership roles and creates a forum where you can build a network of peers to consult well into the future.

High Level Learning With Your Peers

With 11 sessions and round tables for Chief Executives only, you will have the chance to learn from national experts about major hot topics such as trade wars and tariffs, capturing enterprise value through external affairs, and corporate citizenship. 

Our general session Keynote Speakers have also all agreed to conduct a private, hour long sessionas part of this series where you can further discuss their areas of expertise directly and how their expertise can be applied to employee owned companies. 

And don’t forget about the new Executive Lounge and Business center, where you can network throughout the conference and have a safe harbor to get away from the distractions.

Best of all, this new experience is entirely flexible and customizable – come to one and then go to other sessions as you wish...or attend them all and skip the rest of the conference. You’re the boss. No additional fees and no reservations are needed - just your name badge will be all that is necessary to take your seat at the table.

Please Note: The Chief Executive Series is for CEOs and Presidents of ESOP Companies only and is included in the price of registration. If you are interested, please let us know by answering the question during registration.

You can’t plug just anyone into a leadership role at an employee owned company. Unlike conventionally owned businesses, leaders at ESOP companies need to understand the ESOP and how to manage an employee ownership culture—in addition to possessing the other skills required of executives. Hiring the wrong executive or chief executive can critically damage a healthy culture of engagement and ownership—the very things that provide your business with an advantage that competitors can’t readily duplicate. Come engage in an open discussion with your peers about making succession planning work for employee owned businesses.
