Luminary Series

Exclusive events featuring notable innovation leaders who will candidly share their business insights, lessons learned, and unique experiences. CONNECT’s Luminary Series presents extraordinary opportunities to delve into complex topics with today’s top achievers.

Executive Development

Professional development programs, led by strategic advisors, designed specifically for the challenges of mid-market growth. These interactive workshops provide focused and detailed instruction around advanced business problems or specialized, industry-specific topics.
