Creative to CEO

Monday, November 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm • Organized By President of RE Brands
1600 John Buck O'Neil Way, Kansas City, MO 64108


Transition from being a creative entrepreneur to the CEO of an organization can be brutal. For most of us creatives, structure and reporting are the things we avoid. Our panel will speak openly about mastering habits to keep you focused and still creative as the CEO. We will also discuss hiring to your weakness and finding the people who can support you best.
