The only thing constant is change. This is perhaps more true today than ever before as fundamental shifts within our organizations, business practices, technology, and the arts landscape come faster and more dramatically than ever before. Join us for an opportunity to converse over lunch with Cincinnati’s top creative executives who are or have recently shepherded their organizations through significant changes. As a participant, you will have the chance to ask these leaders any questions you wish. Building on this year’s theme of Building Leadership Capacity, we encourage you to think about these changes and challenges as opportunities, and come equipped with queries about how our guests have used them to build leadership capacity within themselves, their staff, and their organization. Don’t feel stifled though as all questions are welcome!
