CECP’s Board of Boards, a Forbes-named top three “power player” event for CEOs, is a three hour, closed-door networking discussion. A benefit of being a CECP CEO, the event provided the opportunity for peers to discuss the business imperative for infusing stakeholder needs into core business strategy. Remarks from CEO Force for Good honorees informed board meeting-style conversations. This year’s event included the first-ever strategic investor presentations in the afternoon.
