The Geno Auriemma UConn Leadership Conference is an exclusive event for senior managers and emerging leaders from across a broad spectrum of businesses and industries.
The 2018 Geno Auriemma UConn Leadership Conference – Agile Leadership: Staying Ahead of the Game – featured many prominent business executives engaging in discussions of what it means to be an agile leader.

Here are some of the speakers’ thoughts on everything from personal and career growth and leading virtual teams, to being nimble and taking risks and building a supporting team you can trust and rely.
