Event Overview

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 a day to gather with peers who uniquely understand your triumphs and challenges. From cutting-edge speakers, to hot-button breakout sessions. It’s 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 motivates today’s workforce (increasingly influenced by Millennials/Gen Z). On the contrary, it’s meaning that motivates employees, and does so on a sustaining basis. 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 feed learning and personal growth, inspire self-esteem, grant autonomy, and craft an environment of authenticity. Leave with practical tools you can put in practice immediately.

Alex Chausovsky

Director of Speaking Services, ITR Economics

    Morning Breakout Session | Business succession planning

    Presenter: Gabriel Hamilton, Partner and Claire Rosston, Associate, Holland & Hart LLP

    Business Succession Planning

    • Start the way you mean to finish. Planning for succession begins with establishing your entity, making initial tax decisions, and keeping clear records of ownership and other organizational matters.
    • Success for the third generation. Most family businesses fail to manage the transition from the second to the third generation of family owners. The ones that succeed tend to adopt certain strategies and legal structures to manage the generational change. The same strategies and structures can be used in all businesses transitioning to new management and ownership.
    • The exit event. The most common succession strategy is a sale of the business to a new owner. The terms of this deal will be heavily negotiated, and a seller should be prepared.
