The Summit was a phenomenal event!

NOME had their inaugural Leadership Summit on June 1, 2015 and June 2, 2015. The Summit was kicked off with a wonderful reception held at Eno Wine Bar located on Chicago’s magnificent mile. The Reddrick Music band provided smooth sounds as guests were served award winning hors d’ oeuvres. Guests enjoyed networking in a venue that glowed among the stone lions, water fall and pillars that made you feel you had transformed time to an era of The Roman Dynasty. The bartender, a Sommelier introduced the guests to informative facts about the selection of wines being served for the evening.

The Summit took place the next day at state of the art University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center. The day had outstanding speakers that included our 2015 Outlook panel of speakers; Randall Blankenhorn, Secretary, Illinois Department of Transportation, Mariyanna Spyropoulos, President of the Board of Commissioners, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, Cheiko High, Deputy Commissioner, Chicago Department of Transportation and Tom Powers, Commissioner, Chicago Department of Water Management. They shared important information on projects, goals and business opportunities at their agencies. The panel, P3 Straight Talk which included Greg Straight from Denver, Regional Transportation District spoke on their highly successful Eagle P3 Project and Roger Driskell, Deputy Director from IDOT, shared his expert knowledge on how a P3 works. The Mentor Protégé – Small Big Relationships panel with speakers, Jorge Moreno, President, CivCon Services and John Trotta, Senior V. P. and Regional Business Manager, Parsons Brinckerhoff was extremely informative. Attendees could not stop asking questions of speakers, Dana Potts, Financial Advisor Northwestern Mutual, Dr. Terry Mason, President, Cook County Board of Health and Dr. Carla Hightower, President, Living Health Works from the Wellness for Executive – Mental, Physical and Financial Panel. The much anticipated panel on How to Take Your Business to the Next Level – Mergers and Acquisitions presented by our luncheon keynote speaker, Joyce Johnson Miller, Senior Managing Director and Co- Head of Relativity Capita, LLC was exceptional and took the mystery out of company expansion. There were several other panels that included Procurement Officers Evolving Rules and Future Opportunities and The Values of Relationships. All the panels were excellent and shared beneficial information to help you and your company for improvement and growth. After the panels, attendees had an opportunity to talk one on one at the delicious dessert networking reception.

This event WILL be an annual event! – Make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to be IN THE KNOW at our next NOME Leadership Summit presented in June of 2016
