Event Overview

**IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE**

In response to the coronavirus and with the Vistage community’s safety in mind, the Vistage Executive Summit is now offered as live virtual sessions with our keynote speakers.
These are tumultuous times. Now more than ever, leverage the support of the Vistage community to lead the way — together. This online event is an opportunity to:

  • Gain targeted insights and data about current events — and learn what it all means for your business.
  • Get informed to lead with confidence.
  • Step back for a morning and re-energize.
  • Be empowered by community. You are not in this alone!

Lead the way together


You are the pioneers of your time. Innovating. Riding the wave of disruption. Being the disruptors. When you think you’ve found a foothold, things change. And yet — you still lead fearlessly.

You are here, because the best is not enough. You know what you’re capable of, and your peers support you. You are leading the way — together. With an impact that resonates from business, to community, to the world.

Diverse perspectives. Collective wisdom. Shared experience.

Your Vistage Executive Summit is an opportunity to step away from the minutiae of the day-to-day to work on your business, rather than just in it.

Think of it as a synergy of the resources you leverage all year.

Lend your voice to a conversation incomplete without your insights.

Maybe, you’re feeling overwhelmed. Or, you fear being left behind. Though it can feel lonely at the top, know this — you are not in it alone. Roll up your sleeves and gain actionable new ideas to bring back to your team.

Your leadership journey is unique to you. Join your peers on this day, and consider the mountains you’ll move tomorrow.


Event Speakers


Scott Mautz

Founder, Profound Performance

The leadership secret of today’s high-performing organizations

Perks, promotions and pay. These aren’t what sustains motivation for today’s workforce (increasingly influenced by Millennials/Gen Z). On the contrary, it’s meaning that motivates employees over the long haul. Research shows meaning-rich organizations get results like no other. This presentation from Scott Mautz will explore “The Markers of Meaning,” specific conditions you can foster to create meaning in and at work to fuel a sense of purpose, feed learning and personal growth, inspire self-esteem, grant autonomy, and craft an environment of caring and authenticity. Leave with practical tools you can put into practice immediately.

*NOTE: This keynote incorporates perspective for operating in a coronavirus world, where meaning matters more than ever.


Taylor St. Germain

Economic Analyst, ITR Economics

Never has it been more critical for you to have clear, impartial and data-driven perspective on how factors such as COVID-19 and oil price volatility will impact the economy moving forward, and what you should be doing in response. This session from ITR Economics will help you determine the best course of action for the most important part of the economy — you and your business. ITR will cut through the noise to present its expectation of the human and business impact of these black swan events. Additionally they will:

    2. Present the outlook for the market segments most important to your industry.
    3. Assess interest rate and other financial market trends, including the latest information on stock market performance.
