Executive Insight is your opportunity to hear the secrets to career success and what it takes to have an impact on the future of Sacramento business. This is a fantastic event and represents the essence of what Metro EDGE is about – inspiring and engaging the future business and community leaders of our region. The only event to sell out three years in a row, you’ll want to register early, as there is limited capacity!
