In addition to our larger annual leadership conference, ICAN hosts a series of smaller events throughout the year featuring a speaker presenting on relevant and innovative business leadership topics, often with a workshop or interactive experience incorporated. These events are held to connect more with our graduates and customers, bring together the entire business community – large & small – around leadership, enhance learning, and present varied content in accessible and beneficial formats. The Leadership Exchange events currently include:

7x7x7s – 7 minutes x 7 different topics x 7 minutes each

We hold an Omaha 7x7x7 held each Fall and a Lincoln 7x7x7 held each spring. Our next 7x7x7 will be held virtually in Spring 2021.
