The CEO Series has adopted a new format this year for these free monthly seminars. You still enjoy coffee while networking from 8-8:30 a.m. But the main event has changed. No longer do you hear from only a single presenter. Instead, the featured CEO presents his or her company and a challenge the company currently faces, after which, the CEO Series organizers, Ellen Huxtable, Paul Lloyd and Bill Price, act as the expert panel, asking questions and giving advice -- and then they open up the discussion to the audience for questions and more advice or reports of similar experience.
The CEO Series organizers cover the gamut of business areas: administrative, capitalization, organizational, marketing ... pretty much all of the important parameters to look at when your company needs to solve a problem or take advantage of an opportunity, So come hear their advice to the company of the month -- and pick up some ideas for your own company!
