    I LOOK FORWARD TO TAKING WHAT I HAVE LEARNED HOME TO CONTINUE THE DISCUSSIONS STARTED IN ISRAEL WITH MY PEERS, AND HOPEFULLY HELP TO RESOLVE SOME OF THESE ISSUES THROUGH MY INVOLVEMENT IN THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY IN THE FUTURE.

    The annual Excel Leadership Conference forms the nexus of the ongoing leadership development and relationship building available to Excel alumni. Through the conference, Excel alumni are given the rare opportunity to meet and hear from prominent business leaders, politicians and educators who have made a lasting impact on the world. Past conference speakers have included Howard Lutnick, Seth Merrin, Jane  Rosenthal, Cory Booker, Michael Steinhardt, Dennis Ross, Bennett Golub, and Yossi Vardi to name a few.

     

    In addition to being inspired by world-class speakers, the conference encourages and enables Excel alumni to take an active role in community leadership by exploring Jewish identity and Israel connections, imparting values and discussing social responsibility, and providing skill workshops and networking opportunities. All Excel alumni are expected to make attending the annual conference a priority and to plan accordingly.

     
     
     
    The biggest impact that Excel had on me is that it helped me to be introspective about my career goals and personal values. Learning from each of the speakers has been nice, and networking has been relevant, but the most valuable piece has been about setting values within my career goals.

    Excel has challenged me to be more involved philanthropically. I have always been “involved” but that used to only mean networking. Now I do good things for other people just because they are good things. It has also helped me build a stronger connection to the Jewish community, which I am certain would not have happened without Excel.
