  • How it all Fits – another way to view this experience Note: This slide provides a graphic representation of the highlights from the agenda slide. Leadership Connections really is all about you, the business, and networking. Some of the major activities associated with You are the assessments you completed, the feedback you have and will receive from executive coaches and VPs. Related very much to You are the Networking activities. We have some special activities planned that are designed to facilitate networking. A couple of these are the Around the world dinner tonight and game night on Thursday. Both are very exciting! Some of the highlights from the agenda that are placed in the business are, of course, learning first hand from Jonathan about Leadership; the simulation will provide a fun engaging way for you to learn about the business.. Finally, for those of you who expressed an interest, we have a tour of the EBC.
