Join us for the first In Conversation with the CEO and General Managers Network.

From General Manager to CEO - Reflections, Stories and Lessons

Come and hear the panellists stories, learn about their transitions from GMs to CEOs, how they got there, what their first year was like, and what the new role meant for their leadership style. Explore questions such as "Are there enough GMs willing to explore being a CEO?" and "What can GM's do to complement my leadership style and vice versa?"
