ON THE MAIN STAGE: Are You Ready to Rock?
Rock stars have always had a cultural mystique that transcends their individual accomplishments. In business, the rock star is the top performer, the one who has the power, energy, and influence that makes them stand out from their peers.

Keynote speaker Mark Schulman, drummer for legendary musicians including P!nk, Foreigner, and  Beyoncé, will take you on a musical, passionate, and revelatory journey through his experiences and provide insight on how to evolve your understanding and implementation of peak performance and joy! You’ll get the tools to change your relationships, improve your business, and increase the happy moments you experience in your life.

Come Together!
Your network is key to your success, and the pandemic rocked the way we connect. We’re back – from Leader Workshops to Luncheons, Opening Receptions to 90th Anniversary Celebrations – the Financial Leadership Summit is your backstage pass to reconnect with colleagues and expand your 'rock star' group.

Southside Johnny And The Asbury Jukes

'Turn It Up to 11!' Opening Reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
We'll get the pre-party started during FEI's 90th Anniversary kickoff reception at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, where the legendary Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes will rock the night away.

FEI will also give you a private party pass to explore the museum for a deep dive into the roots of rock and roll. Dress as the rock star you are and come together for a night of live music, great food and drinks, and the best FEI fans. You'll also get 10% off all merchandise.

Who Benefits?
Get the edge needed to set yourself apart from your peers through leadership development, professional development, and deeper connections.

  • CFOs, Chief Accounting Officers, Controllers, Treasurers, Vice Presidents, and other business executives sharpen their power skills through executive leadership sessions. Invite key clients and staff to join you and deepen the relationships with those important to your business.
  • Company finance teams can learn and network with an outstanding group of peers and industry experts, obtaining power skills and strategies for personal and professional success. Individuals from the same team can “divide and conquer” concurrent sessions and bring back twice the information to share with colleagues.
  • Finance leaders in both public and privately-held companies benefit from a powerful combination of general sessions and CPE to stay well informed, improve productivity and accuracy in your role. Attending the Financial Leadership Summit offers great value to increase staff performance and motivate employees without taking a toll on the budget.

  • Work teams can use Summit as a mini retreat -- teambuilding while learning, networking, with some fun.
