Great News!! For the third year in a row, Central Exchange is proud to provide Post-Summit Learnshops to all attendees of the 2023 Midwest Leadership Summit.
The inspiration, curiosity, and growth you experienced on April 18 will continue! Join us in May, June, July and August for continued conversations with some of your favorite speakers for Central Exchange's Post-Summit Learnshops.
At this year’s Summit, we embraced Culture as what influences the way we view, experience, and engage with all aspects of our lives – personally and professionally. With shifting concerns and ever-changing work environments, we learned how you can shape the culture that surrounds you because CULTURE STARTS WITH YOU.
Join us virtually on May 10 at 3 PM to continue the conversation with afternoon keynote, Simone Ahuja, and Leader of Central Exchange, Ann Hackett, as they continue the conversation in a one-hour fireside chat about Simone's keynote session: Revolution is an Inside Job: Women's Intrapreneurship.
