A morning well-invested

Your morning includes a world-class faculty addressing meaningful and practical topics – all before lunch!

Leading with Relational Intelligence – Every great leader understands that relational intelligence is key to getting work done.

Apple’s Angela Ahrendts (Senior Vice President of Retail), who recently toured the world meeting Apple employees, will explain her conviction that empathy is an essential quality to great leadership.



Identifying Future Opportunities – Strategic leaders are forward-thinking—intentionally identifying cultural trends and opportunities on their organizational horizon.

Craig Groeschel (Co-Founder & Senior Pastor, Life.Church) will teach us what it means to be a leader who prepares for the future instead of reacting to it.



Strive Masiyiwa, (Founder & Chairman, Econet Group – one of Africa’s largest telecommunications companies), will help us learn what it means to be a leader who perseveres to fight for the future of our world.
