Leadership Broward Foundation, Inc.

Senior Executive Orientation (SEO) Leadership Broward Senior Executive Orientation


The Senior Executive Orientation is an intensive overview of Broward County. The program is designed to acquaint senior-level executives with the physical, social, economic and educational structure of our community. In addition to meeting and networking with some of the area’s key decision makers, selected Senior Executive Orientation (SEO) participants will be given contacts and resources which will enable them to become more effectively involved in community issues.


Who Should Attend?

The SEO program is a unique opportunity in Broward County for CEOs and senior-level executives who are new or relatively new to the community and want to know more about the area – with a minimum expenditure of time. The ideal candidate is the President, CEO, COO, CFO, or an executive who reports directly to the senior officer in the organization.



This interactive program sponsored by Leadership Broward Foundation, Inc. and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, is designed by a steering committee to focus on Broward County’s history, culture, government, education and economic development. Participants will obtain valuable information from Broward County’s most knowledgeable authorities and as a participant, you will have the opportunity to meet and network with other top executives, key decision-makers, and top-level policy makers in both an educational and social setting.



We could not provide the exceptional quality expected of the SEO program without the support of our generous sponsors. For more information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact Laurie Sallarulo at (954) 767-8866 x24.



The program dates are tailored to meet the needs of the overextended executive. Time away from the office is minimized. SEO requires a full commitment by selected participants to attend the sessions and networking receptions.
