It’s called Exec IN, and Source One and StrategicSourceror are very proud to be its sponsor. What is it? It’s a session, split over two days, that provides notable leaders the opportunity to discuss their successes, challenges, and solutions that they’ve developed in their careers and have implemented in their organizations.
