Ready to make business connections that benefit both you and the community in the near year? Learn about the Chamber’s Roundtable Kick-Off in January.
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber is hosting its annual Leadership Roundtable Kickoff on January 22 at the Cintas Center.
The event will feature bestselling author Bo Burlingham, author of Small Giants.
During the event, Burlingham will discuss what he learned while writing his book about 14 small-to-midsize, privately owned companies that are widely acknowledged as being the best at what they do, and that have been given notice for the contributions those companies have made to their communities.
“He found that they all had what he calls mojo – an elusive quality that makes them irresistible to customers and employees alike,” the Chamber says. “Their mojo, he showed, comes from six characteristics they have in common. In his presentation, Burlingham talks about those characteristics and describes the specific techniques that companies use to generate mojo.”
The Leadership Roundtables are designed to help connect non-competitive C-Suite business leaders from a variety of industries and organizations from around the city. The roundtables help to offer an exchange of information, ideas, and insights while also giving leaders the chance to understand and share the unique challenges they face in their positions.
“Each roundtable consists of 8-12 business leaders in similar roles and provides an opportunity to learn directly from each other as well as guest speakers,” the Chamber says.
There are many benefits to joining Leadership Roundtables, which are now part of the Chamber’s Talent Pillar. “The team is focused on developing and connecting top leaders in our region, strengthening businesses and helping the region thrive,” adds the Chamber.
Benefits of joining the roundtables include tailored business and leadership workshops, behind-the-scenes community experiences, and pop-up lunches and happy hours that focus on a current business topic, facilitator and moderator training.
For those who are thinking of joining the Leadership Roundtable program, the Chamber says it’s important for leaders to join a roundtable that best meets their needs and expectations.
“Individuals are placed based upon the current composition of existing roundtables, the membership needs of current members, the expectations of those seeking to join and desire to sustain a non competitive environment,” the Chamber shares. “In addition, there is the opportunity to become a founding member of a brand-new roundtable. New roundtables are created by the Chamber based upon the compatibility and interest of prospective members.”
Current available roundtables from the Chamber include, CEO Roundtables, CFO Roundtables, COO Roundtables, IT Roundtables, CMO Roundtables, Manufacturing Roundtables, CSO Roundtables, CHRO Roundtables, and Supply Chain Roundtables.
