Proximity is Power

Who you surround yourself with and who you confide in is an integral component of how successful you and your business can be.

Join us on May 25 to hear how our panel of business leaders grew their organizations through the strength of building their support teams and how they used the value of relationships to create their successes. Whether it be through internal processes or external groups, such as advisory or other peer groups, all leaders need council to expand their thinking and determine what outside the box opportunities can affect their business.

After our robust panel discussion, The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber will unveil our redesigned and refocused Roundtable Program. We’ll review several new roundtables, added benefits for members, and ways the Roundtable program will continue to grow and be of value to members. Along with a group of Roundtable participants and executives from AMEND Consulting, the Chamber has worked to evaluate and refresh the Roundtable Program to better meet your needs. We’re excited to share our progress and plans for this important program.
