“CEO Roundtable meetings allow the opportunity for sharing of common concerns and issues that all business leaders face,” said Jim Light, chair of the Small Business Council and owner of LaMode Quality Cleaners. “We hear from participants all the time about how much they are learning from each other in these groups.”
Roundtable participants can get much-needed encouragement, feedback and resources to potentially make them more successful as business leaders in today’s challenging environment.
Tulsa Metro Chamber provides a facilitator and group training but does not participate directly in the groups. Applicants for the groups must hold the position of CEO or the equivalent in their companies; the company must have been in existence for at least two years; the company must be a Tulsa Metro Chamber member in good standing; and the company must have minimum annual sales revenue of $250,000.
Groups are now forming, and training dates will be held throughout the year. There is no cost to participate. For more information, contact Kinnee Tilly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
