Vistage Best Practice Chair Bill Oyler applauded his success: “On the 18th of November, Denny Thurman launched his group,CE4224, in Salt Lake City, UT, adding to the ranks of a growing Vistage Utah. Thoughtfully selected, Denny’s members jumped into very significant issue discussions during their “launch” meeting. Denny’s ability to set a tone of safety and comfort, creating the space, where his members chose to dig deeply and support a fellow member, is a gold standard of this aspect of Chairing. Denny is a welcome addition to our tribe.”
