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.
“Having lived in Connecticut for over 17 years, I had no idea how much Hartford has to offer from a business and cultural perspective. I’m also sure that by participating in the Executive Orientation Program, I’ve made connections that will be long-lasting.”
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 opened my eyes to the beauty, history and, more importantly, the potential of Hartford. I’ve come to know and appreciate the wonderfully talented people I met who are working hard in this region to effect change, in the non-profit, private and public sectors. The program motivated me to want to do more, not only in my role at Foodshare, but as a citizen of Greater Hartford.”
