Kokomo CEO News 9.1.17

First Biz Visit Hosted by CEO Alumni

Derek Sullivan, Kokomo Jackrabbits & Municipal Stadium
Our very own CEO '16 grad and Purdue sophomore, Derek Sullivan, led us on a tour and discussion about Kokomo Municipal Stadium and the Kokomo Jackrabbits. "We're averaging 1,500 people per game with aprox 400 walk-up customers, so we're very pleased with how we're growing." Not only does Derek work there, but Kokomo CEO '15 Alec Downing is the assistant business manager as he enjoys his junior year at Taylor University.

Students Drive the Learning

Connor Rezo & Andrea Peterson

Here Andrea Peterson reads her journal from Sunday as Morgan suggested it would help other students get a different or fresh view of journaling. Connor Rezo got a new appreciation for facilitating as he led us on a debrief of Kokomo Municpial Stadium.

We are making progress on the lanyard project. We had a great coaching time with Morgan which helped us dial in on the "who" and what" of the project.

By the Way

A special thanks to Brad Priday who prepared to discuss insurance with us, but Wed's widespread fog delays diverted our plans.

This Monday Sept 4 is Labor Day, so we hope you enjoy the 3-day weekend. We know we will!

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Kokomo CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 15 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 20 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.

If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
