Central Exchange Leadership Lyceum

The Central Exchange Leadership Lyceum is the signature leadership development event for women and men in the Kansas City area. Each year, the Lyceum attracts close to a thousand participants for a day of nationally recognized speakers and networking. The all-day event was launched in 2002 as The Central Exchange Women’s Lyceum focused on helping women develop their leadership capabilities. In 2010, the event was rebranded as The Central Exchange Leadership Lyceum targeting a broader audience.

Brand You: Know Yourself. Make Yourself Known.

The goal for the 2015 Lyceum is to present the premier leadership event in Kansas City focused on leadership through branding. The program will provide attendees with strategies and techniques to tell your story by understanding, building, changing and enhancing your brand capabilities. Attendees should leave the conference able to:

•           Recognize key attributes of a successful brand

•           Learn from leaders about their brand journeys

•           How to create or reinvent a company or individual brand overtime

•           Identify strategies to manage a social media reputation
