Tears, Failure, and Success: CEOs Tell All
The life of a CEO: private planes in the AM, “meetings” in the afternoon, and steak dinners to close the day. Yeah, you wish. In Mark Cuban’s words, you have to “work like there’s someone working 24-hours a day to take it all away from you.” Sounds cushy, right?
Strip away the stereotypes, forget what you saw on TV, and hear the real deal from CEOs who are fighting every day to be the best. Where did they start, how did they get here, and how much blood, sweat, and tears did they shed along the way. Join Spredfast’s CEO, Rod Favaron, WP Engine’s CEO, Heather Brunner, and Retailmenot’s CEO, Cotter Cunningham, for an enlightening session on the “glamorous” life of a CEO.
