Presidents, CEOs, Executive Directors: It’s almost time. Time for the 2019 Chief Executive Summit. This summit is designed to equip CEOs of sports destinations and sports events with the tools necessary to advance the mission of their organization. Industry experts will be there to talk about topics such as office culture, crisis management, achieving goals and more.

Scott Dupree, Executive Director for the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance, joined us at last year’s Chief Executive Summit. He tells us the content was exceptional. “I felt, and from what I gathered from the other attendees, that each of the featured speakers really hit the mark in terms of providing information and analysis that was pertinent and relevant to what we do in our jobs as CEOs of sports tourism organizations,” said Dupree.

One of the topics that hit home with Dupree and many of our other guests last year was Jason Willford’s presentation on the Culture Index. With Willford’s ideas, Dupree said it helped him think differently about his staff. “They all handle deadlines, stress, and internal and external working relationships differently. Jason’s presentation was a real eye-opener in terms of thinking about the best ways to put each of your staff members in their possible position to succeed, based on their own individual makeup and character traits.”

There is also so much to learn outside of the agenda. With dozens of other CEOs and Executive Directors in one city, networking can happen the entire two days. This year, attendees will be visiting some of Louisville’s best spots including Angel’s Envy and Churchill Downs. Dupree found outings like these helped him to network with his peers and counterparts from around the country.

Join Scott Dupree and many others at this year’s Chief Executive Summit November 5 - 6 in Louisville, Kentucky. Learn more about the summit and register here.
