We are currently a key player in a national leadership tour, market study and business leadership exchange. The program is a showcase platform to highlight the best business drivers across a number of major metros throughout the United States.
We are showcasing distinguished companies, business leaders and cities that are poised for major business growth over the next five years. The tour will include more than a dozen cities across the country, as well as some hidden gems in key rural and small town regions.
We have some special plans for Kansas City area leaders. The Kansas City metro is our home, and we want to take this opportunity to showcase the city and it’s leaders on the tour. While our organization is national in scope, the Kansas City area has been headquarters for the past 15 years. We have lifelong ties to the region and a strong affinity to the people, the communities, the businesses and the lifestyle of the greater Kansas City metro.
Because of our commitment to the Kansas City region, we’re developing a special platform to promote Kansas City based businesses, industries and leaders in conjunction with our U.S. Alpha Board tour. Our “Growing up KC” program is a special series to promote KC area leaders, companies, lifestyles and growth opportunities on a local, regional and national scale.
So, what does that mean? Quite simply, “leaders wanted.” We are putting together a list of some of the standout leaders who represent not only the legacy of the region, but the future. We are seeking business owners, CEOs, senior executives, business advisors, and also “Kansas City lifestyle” experts to helps us tell the story of Kansas City to the world.
It’s an opportunity for leaders to interact with each other, meet other leaders in other cities, highlight their businesses, and frankly get placed in the news. We cannot promise the cover of Rolling Stone magazine but our past efforts have been well received. Our work has been recognized by BusinessWeek, Forbes, CNBC, Reuters, Bloomberg, MSNBC, EuroInvestor, and dozens more. One lucky chap that went through this process subsequently became the featured cover story for Fortune Small Business. Through Alpha Board, we will host speeches, CEO interviews, panel discussions, a series of leader roundtables, and also work with leaders to develop news profiles about their respective companies. There will be some significant opportunities beyond this, but one thing at a time. If you are an Alpha Grade leader, and spend at least a portion of your personal and professional life associated with a Kansas City area business, we’d love to have you join us.
One quick word of note. We’ll be working with key industry leaders and innovators in other cities, states, companies and industries across the country. A major goal of the program is a national leadership exchange, providing national visibility and opportunities to develop new relationships with business leaders throughout the U.S. Our Alpha Board Leadership Exchange will bring national leaders and experts to Kansas City and Kansas City leaders to other markets across the nation. We believe your reputation is like rainfall. You need to spread it around a bit even to grow anything at home.
CEOs and business leaders from other parts of the country are visiting Kansas City as a part of our tour. Kansas City leaders who participate early in the “Growing up KC” program and/or the national Alpha Board activities will have the opportunity to meet them, hear them speak, and participate exclusively in KC area Alpha Board Leadership Exchanges. There will be reciprocal trips as well, as we bring Kansas City leaders to other peer cities. As a result, there is some urgency and advantage to getting your name in the hat, and getting involved in the process.
