TRG Executive Summit
Come together with executive arts leaders from around the United States and Canada or across UK and Europe, to learn how to effectively lead your arts organization toward sustainable revenue growth. You'll learn directly from TRG Arts consultants and clients about our approach, receive custom data analysis to benchmark your organization, as well as discuss what's working for you in peer-to-peer conversations.
TRG typically holds Executive Summits in January, July, and October in North America and in March and September in the UK and Europe, and content is designed by TRG's President & CEO, Jill Robinson, for the senior leader at large and mid-sized cultural institutions.
