Executive Insight 2019

Executive Insight is an opportunity for Sacramento’s premier leaders to impart their wisdom to the next generation. The event asks our region’s most influential men and women to share how they got to where they are today, what it takes to be successful, what missteps to avoid along the way, and what it means to be a great leader. By sharing these secrets to career success, participants can extend their legacy in the region and impact the future of Sacramento region’s business for decades to come.

The program will begin with a panel of our speakers, and you’ll hear a little bit about them. From there, it’s a little like speed dating. Our participating leaders rotate from table to table, full of Sacramento’s best and brightest young professionals. At each table you'll get to ask questions on topics ranging from business acumen and leadership to how to balance family and business success. The program will finish with a networking hour, where you can continue to engage with regional leaders.
