CEO's Message

In times of crisis, great leaders create opportunities to continually build and enhance their capabilities and connections. These same leaders engage their teams and take advantage of what they are learning, use it as an impetus to re-envision their businesses and break long-held paradigms to allow them to move FORWARD Together.

The Annual PEO Leadership Conference is our marquee event of the year, it is known for its cutting edge leadership content and executive networking. We will welcome some of the world’s most sought after thought leaders to stretch your thinking in a time of continuous change and reinvention; and we will do it in an interactive two-day IN-PERSON and live-streamed conference that will allow you to connect, think and grow with some of the world’s best!

You’ll come away with new ideas on how to lean in and lead in today’s business environment, driving disruption and innovations to reshape and reinvent your go-to-market, while fostering a culture of trust and compassionate guidance of your teams.  Through our Global Leadership Exchange, we’ll also welcome our two US Partners, Allied Executives and INC CEO Project as we assemble over 500 business leaders in 3 North American locations.  We are once again looking to make this the best North American Leadership Conference of 2021!

You will enjoy a balance of executive networking opportunities coupled with thought provoking presentations and collaborative discussions.

Participants who are double vaccinated will permitted to attend in person.  For those that choose not to attend in person and/or not vaccinated we are making arrangements to remotely broadcast the November 11th Speakers live via zoom.  This will also allow us to share the speakers and their insights with the employees of both our member organizations and our partners.  All government regulations will be followed and of course may change as we get closer to the event.
