In today’s fast-paced business environment, executives are hesitant to step away for multiday training. It was critical that we had the right partner to lead a robust program on issues facing our industry. Without hesitation, I knew Vanderbilt’s Executive Development Institute was that partner. Having previously earned a Certificate in Business Excellence from the Executive Development Institute, I had seen first-hand the faculty caliber, the professionalism of the staff and the Vanderbilt facilities. This led me to develop a “Music City Innovation” custom program for our company that was not only fun, but it exceeded our expectations and gave participants real tools they could begin using immediately.
