Attending this program was one of the most inspiring and educational experiences in my career. The faculty and curriculum was outstanding and so applicable to our world today - I loved how each section connected to the other - building to an overarching theme of leadership and strategy. The guest speakers really highlighted how our industry is shifting, and what our response needs to be to stay relevant to our customers. I am incredibly grateful to be part of this cohort!
