What Participants Say

"This course has already led to the design of a new statewide initiative designed to help low-income and "first generation" students achieve the academic success necessary in the 21st Century economy."

 "I realized that innovation is not some foreign concept for companies like Google only; it is something that we can easily adopt in our companies."

"A great few days to reflect and refine your skills as a CEO or any other significant leader/influencer in your organization."
