“The New Orleans CEO Roundtable has helped me broaden my exposure to “Big Business” ideas, from a variety of business fields. As a small business owner I am constantly involved in the day-to- day operations of the company with little time to keep up with the ever-changing technology and resources. The New Orleans networking opportunity has given me exposure to how other small businesses are dealing with changing technology, finances, and business issues. The greatest reward from the Roundtable has been having a sounding board of peers to work with and help implement ideas in my day to day business.” – Jill Foxworth, Dependable Glass Works, Inc.
