Executive Roundtable Group

Share. Connect. Grow.

Roundtables provide an opportunity for executives to network with their peers, stay informed on emerging trends, exchange ideas and share best practices in a confidential forum. Participation in an AHTD executive roundtable enhances professional development and business growth.

AHTD members will develop a trusted network with colleagues from the industrial automation industry as they share ideas and discuss challenges that are faced on a daily basis.

AHTD Roundtables are led by an expert facilitator from MRA - The Management Association who ensures each session is an effective and efficient use of time.

Executive roundtables focus on critical conversations within a peer group of 10-12 participants. Due to the sensitive nature of discussion in these groups, potential candidates will be screened for competitive conflict with current participants before being added to an existing roundtable.

Program Details: 8 Sessions
