Melissa Burkhart

In this episode, Mitchell Levy, together with Renaissance Executive Forums CEO Jim Canfield as co-host for the month of March, talks with Melissa Burkhart on various topics that C-suite executives love to discuss. As the president of FuturoSolido, Melissa provides insights on how many top executives find it lonely at the top. She describes how being a member of a group like Renaissance Executive Forums has given her support and encouragement as the owner of her company. Jim notes that the benefits of being a member of forum groups extend beyond reciprocity (or exchanging referrals) to receiving the help of people whom you trust and look up to. It provides opportunities for getting fresh ideas and perspectives from people who are the top executives of their own organization.

As a forum group for executives, Renaissance Executive Forums helps develop companies to become successful,enabling leaders to achieve goals. Melissa calls it a place where advice and feedback are brought to the table with absolutely good intentions. Members have a sincere desire for everyone in the forum to be successful. And because members of the forum group come from multiple fields of expertise, you hear different perspectives from people with varied backgrounds.
