The Metro Atlanta Chamber spotlights local and national leaders in candid conversations about their road to success.

Learn from Atlanta’s top tier leaders about how to be the best at business through our “Insights on Leadership” guests. Global leaders - such as Muhtar Kent, Coca-Cola’s Company’s president and CEO and Delta Air Lines’ CEO Richard Anderson - have stepped up to the podium, in addition to the top management at national powerhouses, such as The Home Depot and AT&T.

Interested in the public sector? Our guests in government included such leaders as Sen. Johnny Isakson and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

From FORTUNE 500 companies to local chains, MAC works hard to bring the Atlanta leaders with a proven track record of success. It’s an opportunity for you to hear what works - and what doesn’t - and apply the lessons to your own unique business model.
