I'm Ready to LEAD

Are you ready to take your leadership skills to the next level? IIAT & New Level Partners are excited to present LEAD: Leadership Excellence and Development Series.

As an agency leader, you juggle numerous responsibilities every day, from team production to individual staff needs. However, it's crucial not to forget about your own professional growth and development. LEAD is your opportunity to strengthen your leadership foundation, learn essential techniques, and collaborate with fellow front-line leaders to gain invaluable insights.

You can register to attend all six LEAD workshops ($480) or register to attend individual ones ($95 per workshop).

“Being able to collaborate with other leaders from different business spectrums was a great way to get varying opinions.“ LEAD Graduate, 2024
