It has been three months since the 2022 William R. Bracey CEO Symposium in Baton Rouge, LA and we find ourselves still trying to process the significance of driving change. More than 300 people attended in person (since 2 years) to listen, find inspiration, and participate in the conversations and trainings.
Seeing this vision come to fruition was something we still cannot quite describe, but we are thankful. Many people have asked what is next and where we go from here? Now, it is time to get to work and register for our 46th Annual Training Conference and Exhibit in Orlando Florida from July 22-27.
