CEO Academy Series

Are you webinared out? We hear you! That’s why we went back to the drawing board to revamp our traditional webinar series.

Each year, we survey the second-stage CEOs in our network on the topics most important to them and the areas of business they may be facing challenges in. We took those top 10 topics they shared and launched the CEO Academy! GrowFL’s newest program will continue to connect Florida’s CEOs and provide an environment to learn, share, and grow.

Join us for the first session with The Profit Recipe!
Your registration is on us.

When: Thursday, October 21st from 11 am – 1:30 pm
Session Topic: Leadership Best Practices with Franck Saragossi
(We’ll also do a deep dive into what you can expect during this 10-month series.)

What makes the CEO Academy different? 

Although the 10-month CEO Academy will still be virtual, it will operate using the 20/20/20 format:

  • 20 minutes of presentation of a subject matter expert
  • 20 minutes of small group discussions
  • 20 minutes for a group debrief and final Q&A

GrowFL understands the impact connecting will fellow second-stage CEOs can have on business growth. As a statewide organization, we can help you foster those business relationships with peers near you, across the state, in a similar industry – you name it.

We added the small group discussion component so you can connect, share and learn from CEOs like you. The CEO Academy will also give participants the ability to turn their microphones and cameras on to interact directly with the presenter, allowing you to get immediate answers to any questions you may have.

Session topics will include the following.  All sessions are virtual except as noted below:

  • Leadership Best Practices – October 21, 2021, 11am – 1pm
