CEO Roundtable Intensive: Presentations that make your career

Tuesday, August 31, 2021 (7:30 AM - 9:15 AM) (CDT)


A few times in their careers, a CEO must—must—inspire everyone in their organization to take up a wonderful or terrible challenge. At these times, it’s not enough to communicate data or clarify a decision. Everything hinges on not just informing, not just persuading, but inspiring people to take a big step and to keep marching until the challenge is met. Everyone is watching and everyone will remember.

Topic question: How can a CEO deliver a truly inspiring presentation--every time?

Discussion questions

  1. When did one of your presentations transform your organization?
  2. What presentation problems are unique to the CEO?
  3. What risk will you take in your next big staff presentation?

The Intensives format


Unlike other CEO roundtables, The Center's Intensives are 100% peer-led.  The topic is chosen by the group in the previous session, a peer does a short story-telling kick-off which leads immediately into professionally facilitated peer discussion.
