Be our guest at a buffet breakfast and engage with our distinguished speakers who will explore why PURPOSE is a topic of great interest to your clients and the foundation for “Creating a Resilient Business.” 


Our guests will provide their views on what it takes to help your clients, and you, to build a strong, resilient business in today’s hypersonic economic and geopolitical environment when it is developed upon a foundation of purpose.  After a few brief opening comments from our guests, the Forum will be opened for your questions and experiences.
