We are winding up the CEO year this week and next. May 1 will be our last day, with the exception being Trade Show day that has been set for the evening of June 26th. More details will follow....

This week we met virtually on Tuesday and on Thursday video conferenced through the Midland Institute with Kristin Hadeed.

The entrepreneur and best selling author offered excellent practical advice for starting a business and being a successful leader. The importance of “soft skills” continues to be an emphasis of most speakers.

We have transitioned to paper journals. Entries for this week have been pandemic buzzwords, kindness, generosity and positivity you’ve seen during quarantine and special family times at your house. Students share their thoughts in their journals and in our group chat.

Midland Institute announced a “pivot” for the CEO National Trade Show. This is in lieu of the 2020 National Trade Show. (2020 graduates will have the opportunity to participate in the 2021 National Trade Show.)
