The second pillar of the ICCC program, Webinars, are virtual learning sessions that complement and deepen what participants learn at the Opening Seminar. ICCC webinars are 30 to 60-minute-long virtual presentations led by experienced practitioners that cover topics that are customized to growth challenges of the cohort.

The webinars can be watched live or from the archive at any point after they’ve been recorded, and so participants can listen to the presentations on their own time from the office or at home.

“This was by far one of the best webinars that I have attended. The content was great and the resources provided can be implemented immediately.” 
Jamerson Strategic Consulting, 2018 ICCC Memphis Participant
