This Chief Executive Program community will start building their action plans for the future as a community of Fellows. At Sundance they will build on all the ideas they have explored, all the conversations with colleagues, all the progress they have made in their organizations and any collaborations with fellow executives. Leaders will come together to ask, “What is possible?” and generate ideas for moving forward against the challenges they now see as most pressing for the field.
