As we thought about what we wanted to accomplish with an executive level seminar series, we ultimately decided that we wanted leaders to think.

Think about what motives them, their people, their clients.

Think about how to adapt, change, excel.

The RogersGray “Thinking Leaders” Executive Series provides leaders the opportunity to hear from executive level coaches and speakers. Our sessions allow business leaders to network with others facing the same challenges and opportunities within their organizations.
