Executive Orientation

By providing senior-level executives, who are either somewhat new to Greater Hartford or new to an executive role, with a fast, but comprehensive overview of the region, the Executive Orientation Program is eye-opening in so many ways! Participants personally engage with fellow leaders from across a broad spectrum of the region’s business, educational, nonprofit and civic organizations.

  • "The Executive Orientation Program provided a wonderful opportunity for me to get to know other influential and passionate executives in the Hartford community and to build relationships that have extended beyond the program. The experience gave me up close and personal insights into the community."

Over the five-session program, Executive Orientation participants build their networks by connecting to key regional stakeholders and learning about the assets and challenges of their Capital City – many times over the course of delicious meals. And by connecting with Leadership Greater Hartford’s network of thousands of community-minded leaders, they discover ways they too can contribute to strengthening the region.

  • "The Executive Orientation Program enabled me to develop a relationship with other city leaders who are looking to make an impact in their community, workplace, and personal growth. The program re-connected me with the "new" Hartford and all it has to offer."
