The Edison Eighth CEO Summit

Strategy. Influence. Positioning. Negotiation. Formation. Execution. These are essential skills of a CEO across a wide spectrum of relationships. The CEO switches from the product to the pitch to the annual plan to the people on a weekly basis, sometimes daily.

What are the characteristics that the best and most admired leaders possess? Were these skills born or made? Can you learn to be fast on your feet? Is process and preparation your best friend in a negotiation or is personality the power punch? Is there a method to positioning yourself and your company for a maximum result?

Welcome to The Edison Eighth CEO Summit! You are invited to join us for a highly interactive, instructive and fun-filled leadership event in the city of the first founder.
