Jason Zickerman looks forward to the panel to discuss effective advisory boards in today's small business economy. "The Summit is exactly the kind of forum our country's executives can get the most out of," Zickerman emphasized. "There is a wealth of knowledge at every session; CEOs from all industries get insights from proven success stories and how they have overcome obstacles we all experience in business. It's like one of our TAB boards on a larger scale, and I plan to share our best practices in the Small Business Advisory Boards panel on Tuesday." Zickerman will appear with other experts in the peer advisory boards breakout session on April 30; the full event agenda can be found on the U.S. Chamber Summit website.
