Executive Leadership Program Open House

Executive leaders are uniquely positioned to transform their organizations and the communities they touch. To be able to accomplish this, executive leaders must learn to see themselves in new ways — now, and over the course of their careers. CEPE's new Executive Leadership program, grounded in current research, is designed to provide the strategies and tools to transform the executive leadership experience.

CEPE's Executive Leadership program is for those who:

  • Currently hold an executive leadership position (C-Suite, Executive Director, VP, or equivalent) in any industry;
  • Possess a minimum of 5 years senior management experience; and
  • Can commit to full attendance on the program dates (see schedule here)

Join us for an Open House on February 22 to meet program leaders and learn more about this unique leadership development experience. A light breakfast will be provided. Space is limited, so register today! Questions? Contact CEPE at 503.719.7655 or

Please note, photos or videos may be taken during this event for training and marketing purposes. Registering for this event implies consent to potential inclusion in group photos/videos.

Crafting an Effective LinkedIn Profile

It's never been more important to have an effective social profile online. Studies have shown that 50% of Fortune 100 companies hire employees through LinkedIn, and referrals are the best source of confidence recruiters can have in engaging with job applicants. Having your profile show up in relevant job searches requires a little bit of work on your end, but can pay off big! This free workshop will focus on your LinkedIn profile. We will cover:

  • How recruiters search for applicants online
  • Practical tips for crafting an effective social profile: what you need at a minimum to put your best face forward
  • Top 10 phrases to avoid in your social profile
  • How to boost your credibility online

Join Janet Johnson, a long-time student of online social behavior and digital marketing resource to Fortune 100 companies, for a practical and down-to-earth workshop. This is a free event but space is limited, so register today! Questions? Contact CEPE at 503.719.7655 or #pdxdms
