Vistage Hosts Local CEOs for Vistage Executive Summit in Chicago

San Diego, Calif. (August 19, 2016) — Vistage Worldwide, a global organization which assembles and facilitates private advisory boards for CEOs, senior executives and business owners, is hosting a Vistage Executive Summit in Chicago on Tuesday, September 13, at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare.

With more than one-third of Chicago small and mid-size business CEOs citing staffing as a top concern, according to a recent Vistage CEO Confidence Index Survey, this exclusive event offers the opportunity for hundreds of local CEOs to come together to explore new avenues to attract and retain the best talent, and achieve continual business growth and success.

Featured keynote speakers include Ben Casnocha, Award-winning entrepreneur, author and executive from Silicon Valley. Ben will share the management and business framework that will help your company recruit, manage and retain the entrepreneurial employees your business needs to succeed in the networked age. Other featured speakers include Brian Beaulieu, CEO of ITR Economics, who will share his insight on economic trends shaping the United States and how to plan for the good and bad economic times to come. Closing out the day, author Dr. Janet Lapp will lead a high-energy presentation where attendees will learn how to make courageous, radical change.

Attendees will also have the chance to come together at one of the following breakfast Network sessions:

  • The Deal Network will explore mergers and acquisitions, growth capital, and liquidity events.
  • The Marketing and Media Network will discover the latest marketing technologies, trends, and strategies.
  • The Purpose-Driven Business Network will discuss how to create a better world through conscious business practices.

“Chicago’s business culture is full of energy and innovation and the Vistage Executive Summit is a great time to highlight the incredible talent we have in the region,” said Regional Executive, Rob Knauer. “We’re excited to come together as a larger group to share new ideas and explore creative ways to make the next year even more successful than the last.”
