Touring St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield

with Sara Beck and Meghan Bertolino
Meghan Bertolino invited CEO to tour of St. Francis Hospital, Litchfield, where the team explored the hospital's services and community outreach programs. Sarah Beck participated in the tour and answered questions related to quality control, managing administrative costs, and patient (customer) care. Aryn Hunter demonstrated the hospital's progressive approach to training with the hospital's high tech simulation patients. Team members also sat in on the leadership team meeting where team leads introduced themselves and explained how their role helps the hospital accomplish its mission and vision to provide the best care for their patients.

Building a Trusted Business with the IRS' Blessing

with Debbie Held
Debbie Held visited CEO to explain what the IRS expects from small business owners. Debbie was very candid and open about the challenges and opportunities for small businesses to keep their financial accounting in line with tax laws while also building their profits. "For starters, you should keep your business account and personal account separate." Debbie explained that it is easier to keep a "fence" between one's personal finances and business finances than to confuse the two and lose financial integrity. Also, she continued, it is important to "keep track of your [business] mileage and your [company] receipts." Team members asked questions related to personal income taxes, understanding taxes related to company profits, and the tax and filing jargon related to tax forms and deadlines.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Montgomery CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 13 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 18 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.

If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message

Kyra Bishop-Jacobs - Montgomery CEO

Kyra Bishop-Jacobs

About Me

Kyra Bishop-Jacobs, a senior at Litchfield High School, joined the CEO program to expand her understanding of the business world and create a local network of business professionals. Since age six, Bishop has been watching as her family ran the Litchfield bowling alley. Throughout the years she has learned that a well run business must be led by someone with excellent leadership, time management and problem solving skills. She also learned that it is important to either personally have a strong understanding of marketing and finance or have a strong network of professionals who have those skills. While attending her uncle's wedding in Chicago, Bishop realized how much she loved the idea of designing a magical evening, free of planning stress, for clients. Bishop has a creative eye for design and exceptional organizational skills, which will both be a great asset to her event planning business.
