“The EIS program has been a fantastic experience. As leaders, I believe it is critical to become immersed in the communities we serve. EIS provides an incredible jump start. I’ve had the opportunity to move around the country, and it usually takes nine to twelve months to accomplish what this program does in a month. I’ve met leaders in a quiet, personal setting that I might not have ever been given the chance to greet outside of a quick public handshake.
I highly recommend EIS for not only new executives, but ANY C-Suite team member. The program is great for business, and it has the potential of being a great asset to the Greater Topeka area.”
– Steve Wade, Publisher, The Topeka Capital-Journal
