About the Executive Insights Series:
The Executive Insight Series offers exclusive events where young professionals have the opportunity to connect with top-level global business executives from the Greater Cincinnati region.

Each event will be small in size (maximum of 15 registrants per event) to align with the Series' mission of providing a personal and engaging experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the featured executive share his or her career journey, while also discussing professional development, career success, and what it means to be a future global leader. Each event also includes a question and answer session, as well as networking opportunities.
