What is Insight AKRON?
Insight AKRON is a full-day community orientation for executives who are new to the Akron area. Through an interactive day of site visits, presentations, and hands-on activities, Insight AKRON offers the perfect opportunity for executives to “hit the ground running” in the Akron community. With Insight AKRON, executives can expedite the process of networking, learning, and getting involved in the Akron community. This program may also be beneficial to leaders new to the area but not currently in an executive role.
When Does the Program Run?
Insight AKRON is held one full day each year. It is scheduled for Thursday, October 12th, 2017.
Who Participates in Insight AKRON?
This program is designed for top-level executives who may be new to the Akron area looking to receive a “crash-course” on our community. This is a good alternative for an executive who may not currently have the time to participate in a more intensive Leadership Akron program.
Can my spouse attend?
While the program is not necessarily designed for couples, your spouse is welcome to register. We have had spouses participate in this program in the past, and the couples have appreciated the opportunity to learn about the Akron area together.
How does participation in Insight AKRON affect participation in other Leadership Akron programs?
Participation in Insight AKRON does not affect participation in other programs. Some past Insight AKRON participants (such as Dr. Rob McGregor, CMO at Akron Children's and Linda Diefendorff of Brio Performance Solutions) have gone on to participate in our Signature program.
Connecting Leaders to Community
Insight AKRON participants are recommended by their employers based on their seniority level, prospective impact as a community leader, and their potential to benefit from the program. Participants will:
Become acquainted with key organizations, decision makers, and issues in the Akron area
Connect with other executives across sectors
Experience behind-the-scenes visits to a number of the Akron area’s most notable assets
Learn the rich history behind the Akron area
Receive an overall orientation to the community that will prove valuable in deciding where to get involved
