Driving Dynamic Decisions

Executives are in the business of making decisions.ves2017-supportcircles-4 Difficult decisions. Big decisions.
Decisions no one else can make.

Many times, there are no clear-cut answers. But there ARE make-or-break consequences.

This is the world you live in. Own it.
Don’t just make a decision. Optimize it.

What is the Vistage Executive Summit?
Helmed by event speakers who walk the talk, the Vistage Executive Summit is not for everyone. It is for you. Executive. Leader. Chief Problem-Solver. This event will provide you with the insights to make better decisions, helping you refine your instincts, improve your judgement, and expand your perspectives.

Every leader can define their tenure by a handful of decisions they made. This event has been re-engineered to enhance your leadership effectiveness, in these key areas:

Business optimization

Fortify your foundation with trusted perspectives, and original approaches to decision-making. 

Leadership enhancement

Sharpen your focus. Bolster your confidence. Define your style. Master the art of execution, to lead fearlessly.


Be empowered to lead with innovation and creativity. Speakers and peers push the conversation forward, helping you grow personally and professionally.

Lunch Breakout | Demystifying and simplifying the hiring and management process

Location/Time: | 12:30 - 1:45 PM

Presenter: Fred J. Matulka, Licensee/ Consultant, Culture Index

Hiring the best or hiring the “Right Person” is an extremely difficult responsibility. Most companies experience extreme difficulty in hiring the right people because of three common mistakes:

  • First: They hire people for what they know and fire them for who they are
  • Second: They hire too quickly and fire too slowly
  • Third: They base their hiring decision on previous experience

These are all easily resolved when you use the Culture Index Program, since it will show how the candidate will apply what they know. By attending this session you’ll learn how to put the right people in the right job and make managing people almost effortless.


Lunch Breakout | Making Sales the Strength of Your Company

Location/Time: | 12:30 - 1:45 PM

Presenter: Karl Schaphorst, President, Sandler Training

The sales function of your business does not become great simply by hiring great salespeople and letting them loose to sell all they can. If sales is to excel, than leadership must proactively set the course. In this Vistage session, we will examine three core elements that need to be addressed by business leadership if high performance sales is to be achieved and how each can be systematized so that the sales process drives efficiency, effectiveness, pipeline predictability and growth. Your great salespeople will achieve more than they ever thought possible.
