The 2015 NC CEO Forum today announced their final program of events for the seventh annual NC CEO Forum, held November 11, 2015 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. According to event organizers, this year’s forum will focus on innovation and how to make North Carolina a better place through ideas that improve products, organizations and communities.  

The event will kick off with a welcome from Governor Pat McCrory, and include keynotes from Arianna Huffington, chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group and General Keith B. Alexander, USA (Ret.), president and CEO of IronNet Cybersecurity.

Lou D’Ambrosio, chairman of Sensus, which made the news last week, will also speak, as will Michael Wilens, president, Enterprise Services at Fidelity and Kristen Johnson, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina and the Wish Family.

The NC CEO Forum was founded by Rick Deckelbaum and Brian Kinahan in 2009 and is an exclusive gathering of executives and management teams who want to gain a competitive edge in an increasingly crowded marketplace. Attendees work together to develop strategies for transforming powerful ideas into practical realities to better serve communities. In addition to improving the state’s business climate, the Forum donates net proceeds from the event each year to a chosen nonprofit partner. Events are invitation only.
