• Part A – Keynotes, CEO polls & data, and Announcement of Transformative CEO Award for Top 10 Businesses in America of 2023 (9/28/2023)

    “LEADERSHIP 2023— AI, Culture & Courage”
    September 28, 2023  11 A.M. – 1 P.M. ET (via Zoom)

    “I believe there is no greater opportunity for true leadership to emerge than in times of transition. The democratization of generative AI is such a time … right now. Just like in the 1990s with the Internet and a decade later with mobility/social, this is a snapshot in time where leadership – the rare combination of exceptional vision, empathy, communication, collaboration and courage — will set the course of enterprises, industries, the economy and society. At this Transformative CEO Summit, top CEOs will convene to brainstorm: the future, core elements of true leadership and the types of cultures that will dramatically elevate organizations. CEOs will learn, share and build the partnerships to lay the foundation for geometric growth.” – Robert Reiss
