Senior Executive Symposium – Where fresh air fosters fresh ideas. Senior Executive Symposium (SES) is a 4-day leadership immersion for senior managers. Co-developed by IAVM and Cornell University, the course inspires executives to lead their staff with creativity, collaboration and a well-rounded management philosophy. Attendees gain a broad perspective beyond business operations, exploring how to truly impact the culture of a facility. SES is designed for any individual who aspires to transcend from a manager to a great leader.
Set in the collegiate think-tank on the picturesque Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY, SES faculty guide attendees through focused training and intensive discussions on topics such as: the customer experience, risk taking, leadership styles, business strategy and the creative process.
SES creates an atmosphere where venue managers can immerse themselves alongside other professionals in both venue and executive management theory. The Symposium is truly a collaborative experience, and a rare opportunity to network, share industry expertise and define excellence in leadership.
The SES curriculum varies each year and can be attended regardless of which year you choose to begin attending. Read more about Senior Executive Symposium on IAVM’s Blog, Front Row News.
