CEOs of community-based organizations have always needed to be nimble, pivot quickly, and seize strategic opportunities to grow. But given the ever-shifting landscape related to the COVID-19 pandemic, changing reimbursement methodologies, transitions to integrated service delivery models, and more, chief executives are now, more than ever, facing opportunities—or the need—to scale rapidly.
Rapid growth can be the result of intentional long-term planning strategies or responses to pandemic-related or other unexpected opportunities. Regardless of the circumstance, CEOs must navigate many complex factors including acquiring capital, building infrastructure, addressing workforce needs, leveraging public policy advocacy to support efforts , navigating bureaucracy , managing boards, and developing new partnerships.
The good news is that you don’t need to figure this out alone. Join us for an intimate and engaging CEOs-only conversation about successes, failures, and lessons learned related to recent rapid scaling efforts. Social Current’s CEO SPARK Exchange invites you to be a part of this first of four CEO-only conversations in 2023.
First, we’ll hear from panelists who have recently gone through rapid growth efforts, and then we will open it up for questions, reflections, and interactive discussion among attendees.
This 60-minute learning opportunity will be designed to start an ongoing dialogue that carries through 2023 and beyond, via our CEO SPARK Exchange discussion board, in-person opportunity at SPARK 2023, and future CEO SPARK Exchange webinars.
Staff at organizations that have purchased Social Current Engagement Packages can join SPARK Exchanges by logging into the Social Current Hub. Learn more about the SPARK Exchanges online.
