Executive Summit 2017

Growing with Purpose : How to Grow Your Business the Right Way

The Executive Summit has been designed to offer professional growth and networking for local executives. Every dollar from ticket sales to the event will be donated to Hidden Wounds to help support veterans. The upcoming event includes six educational sessions and a panel “keynote” from executives of fast growing companies. This year’s event is unique in that ERG Payroll & HR is not the only host. There are six local companies partnering to bring the power of local leaders together for a day they won’t soon forget. The partner hosts include SCRA, Fisher Phillips, Pendleton Street Business Advisors, Sagacious Partners, and Bauknight, Pietras, & Stormer. If you are a leader of a company that is growing or wants to grow, this is a can’t miss event. Topics will range from: How to Grow Your Company the Right Way - The “keynote” of the day will be a panel of CEO’s and Presidents of high-growth organizations sharing their experiences, mistakes, and best practices on the path to scale.
