About the conference

You will be inspired by servant leader CEOs, challenged by master teachers, and armed to make a difference on Friday morning by attending the inaugural Bridging the Gap breakfast event hosted by the Houston Chapter of CEO Netweavers. This exclusive, invitation-only Breakfast with Purpose event will be held on April 7, 2017 from 7:30 AM – 10:00 AM at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston, TX.

Bridging the Gap is an initiative to connect Rice executive MBA students with corporate and community leaders, entrepreneurs, and retired executives for the sharing of leadership insight and the importance of mentoring. Aligned with the Servant Leader philosophy, the program aims to create lasting, mutually-beneficial “bridges” that promote knowledge sharing, personal and professional growth, community building, and leadership development.
