“As a business owner, I find many invitations to network, learn, and study ‘best practices.’ But, let’s face it … time is money, which makes time ‘away’ feel like a luxury that had better deliver some measurable ROI. For me, the Leadership Exchange does that in multiples. It’s why I keep it at the top of my annual list of experiences to plan for and schedule around.”

  • GPLEX 360 was born out of the desire to create a home for ongoing cohort connections and experiences. A once-a-year meeting of the minds only taps into a small amount of the potential for this program, so 360 seeks to extend the mission and best parts of the conference for our community.
