Our L.E.A.D. Forum

Leader Education and Development

The Purpose

Horizon’s LEAD Forum is a challenging professional development program designed to equip operational level managers to lead through and across teams. The Forum develops collaborative leaders who are poised to bridge the gap between strategic objectives and team execution.

The Opportunity

The LEAD Forum series is offered quarterly from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the following dates:

November 30, 2023

January 25, 2024

April 25, 2024

July 25, 2024

The cost per session is $900. The Forum is asynchronous, meaning each day is a stand-alone session. If you miss one day you can pick up right where you left off in the next session. Horizon will provide any documentation requested to earn Continuing Education Credits.

Hosted at Malone’s Prime Events & Receptions, 3373 Tates Creek Rd, in Lexington’s Lansdowne Shoppes, the LEAD Forum is all-inclusive – providing instruction materials, refreshments, and lunch.
