Experience Vistage | Reno, Nevada

Friday, December 13, 2024 7:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. UTC

Event Overview

Become a better leader. Make better decisions. Achieve better results.

Who do you turn to when you need to make the tough decisions? Who challenges you and “questions your answers?” Learn why Reno & Northern Nevada’s top CEOs and executives turn to Vistage peer advisory groups to take their business to the next level.

Join us at an upcoming invitation-only breakfast for the opportunity to test drive a Vistage group meeting. We’ll tackle real issues and collectively provide new perspectives, ideas and solutions. You’ll have the chance to see the real magic of a group meeting, which isn’t normally open to visitors. Discover how our proprietary process can provide:

  • Honest, agenda-free perspectives from a sounding board of executives in non-competing industries
  • Solutions to critical decisions so you can accomplish more, fix internal issues, or avoid costly mistakes
  • Accelerated growth – member companies grow their businesses at 3x the U.S. average

You’ll also hear Sandy Gennaro’s insightful presentation titled: Beat the Odds in Business and Life!  

World class drummer & author of the book, “Beat The Odds In Business And Life,” Sandy now uses the lessons from surviving the murky, shark-infested waters of the music business to help organizations solve issues regarding leadership, change management, employee retention, longevity, motivated engagement, customer service, brand loyalty, team building and sales.

This workshop will help attendees create a culture of improved communication, transparency, and relationships with their teams. It will explore tried and true methods of creating heroes and rock stars throughout your organization through personal recognition of their efforts and nurturing relationships. Members will leave the workshop with the proven methods that Hall of Fame rock stars have used to create career longevity against all odds, cultivating trust amongst their team and maintaining an ever-growing, multi-generational customer (fan) base.

Beat the Odds in Business and Life

My ½ century of navigating the murky, shark-infested waters of the music business has cultivated in me a keen sense of business AND people management, the highlights of which are divulged during my presentation intertwined with video and live drumming. I illustrate how corporate leadership correlates with being a drummer in a band. My audience is involved and participates in my presentation, much like a workforce should be with their leadership/organization. At the core of the principles represented by the acronym B.E.A.T.S.
