Executive Orientation

By providing executives and other senior-level professionals, who are either somewhat new to Greater Hartford or new to their leadership 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.”
