There comes a point – early in everyone’s career – when a single moment will shape a young person’s future forever. Often times, those moments occur when a young professional meets someone who inspires them. And it’s hard to imagine better inspiration than a professional who has not only risen to the top of their organization, but who actively shapes that organization’s future each day.
The Dallas Regional Chamber and its Young Professionals chapter is helping to facilitate moments like these twice annually with its unique program, the YP CEO Series. Each spring and fall, a select group of Dallas’ top executives meet with a small group of YP members to talk about their own career path and share insights about their day-to-day work lives.
The interactive discussion, which takes place in the executive’s office or a local restaurant, offers 10-15 YP members the incredible opportunity for time with some of the area’s top business and nonprofit leaders.
The fall 2012 YP CEO Series kicks off this month with a well-established lineup, featuring:
- Tom Greco, President of Frito-Lay North America
- Carlos Sepulveda, President & CEO of Interstate Batteries
- Stephen L. Mansfield, PhD, FACHE, President and CEO of Methodist Health System
- Nicole Weeldreyer, Managing Director of Goldman Sachs
- Hernan J. Saenz, Managing Partner of Bain Consulting
