CEO Business Visits

Meet Mia Wallace

I am a senior at Northwestern High School. I am involved in many clubs including Nat'l Honor Society, Student Council, and FCA. I am also a member of the Varsity Tennis Team. Outside of school, I am heavily involved in my church. My future plans are to attend Purdue U. and study interior design. I eventually plan to own my own interior design business so the CEO class has already been very beneficial to me. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings!

The PDP Experience

PDP ProScan is a survey that helps us understand our basic and preferred work style, how we'll likely react under stress, strengths and motivators. We broke down into groups of Dominance, Extroversion and Pace and presented posters and/or live-acted commercials for a gathering that would attract that style of person. 

Glad to see that visitors, Robb Blume, Shelia Miller and Dana Davis joined us and played along!

Ted Weber's Famous Loudspeakers

TA Weber
It's amazing that every day Kokomoans drive past a business that's been handcrafting acclaimed loudspeakers sold all over the US and they don't even know it's here! "Who knew that having Kokomo Frozen Custard on my resume would have gotten me my first movie industry job in LA!" -TA Weber. TA's humility and kindness made a big impact on us, not to mention making some of the industry's finest speakers, by hand, right here in Kokomo!

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
