2024 Evolution Leadership Conference


“The knowledge we have gained from the Leadership Speaker Series and our involvement in the Executive Peer Groups has been extremely instrumental in how we now manage the business to not only avoid those dangerous rocks but to use best practices for excelling in the future.”

Steve Vogel

Conestoga Tile

“Being involved in a peer group has definitely delivered. I’ve also gained valuable business connections through my group. They’ve helped me see what I’m good at and what I can do better. The breakfast meetings, annual forum, and IBIS report have all been quite helpful in keeping fresh ideas flowing.”

John Esh

Joyland Roofing

“My peer group has been invaluable to me. They have guided me through assuming ownership of the business, maneuvering the pandemic, daily operations, and now implementing strategic growth initiatives for the future. Their insights and varied perspectives ensure I consider all options. They have connected me with great people and resources for our business.”

“From the moment we engaged with the High Center whether it be a speaker series, my Peer Group, or gleaning guidance from one of the experienced leaders on the High Center team, the relationship has proven to be well worth the cost of being a member.”

Will Rothenberger

“The High Center has been and is invaluable for me. The speakers at our bimonthly meetings are outstanding. The CEO Peer group for me, provides valuable issue resolution and counsel from fellow business owners. Best practices we review at our meetings are a great value.”
