Our conference is the premiere opportunity for a day of powerful leadership development and  inspiration in the region and beyond. Omaha is home to multiple Fortune 500 companies and corporate headquarters, such as TD Ameritrade, Berkshire Hathaway, Mutual of Omaha, Union Pacific Railroad and more. Our audience and sponsorship represent these varied corporate cultures.

Each year we offer a balanced speaker roster, keeping in mind our authentic leadership philosophy and current business leadership trends. In addition to our main stage keynotes, we offer keynote sessions with speakers on a variety of subjects relating to both professional and personal development. The conference experience  also includes interactive opportunities, an invitation-only Executive Women’s Summit, a mobile app, exhibit viewing, bookstore, the opportunity to build meaningful connections, and more.
