What does it mean to Lead Forward?

Leading Forward is being reflective and proactive, curious and planful, mindful and with a keen eye to the future.  Leading Forward is moving from uncertainty to insight.  Leading Forward is taking a multi-dimensional view of where you are and where you wish to be in many facets of life.

On April 26th over 800 women (and men) attended the 2022 Midwest Leadership Summit at the Overland Park Convention Center or online to sharpen their leadership skill set through hybrid sessions with tactical, practical and strategic ideas from today’s most powerful and magnetic thought leaders.

The incredible lineup gave attendees the unique opportunity to Lead Forward by learning through interactive sessions, make meaningful connections with other leaders, take a deeper dive into their own life through a lens of agility, and planned some action to discover, create and achieve the path of their dreams.

At Central Exchange we’re all about equipping you to be your best self – personally and professionally. That’s why we have hosted the Midwest Leadership Summit each and every year since 2003. Save the date on April 18, 2023 as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary with an all-day event full of development, connection and inspiration.
