The “CEO Leadership Forum for Leaders of Michigan’s Companies Driving America’s Economic Comeback” was designed as an exclusive executive level gathering for and by CEOs of Michigan’s Middle Market (companies with annual revenues between $100 million and $750 million). The event was designed to share ideas, discuss insights into innovative approaches, and address critical issues important to Michigan’s business community.
The session provided a combination of networking opportunities and educational content, and provided a unique opportunity for CEOs to interact with their peers. The key topics covered were leadership, global expansion, technology and economic inclusion.
