The eXperience

FMI has developed a leadership event that can't be replicated, leveraging the world renowned Root Compass manager development system. We've redesigned the entire Future Leaders eXperience, addressing one of food retail’s largest emerging issues—workforce. Organizations need emerging leaders to bring new strategies to life. Future Leaders eXperience offers rising stars a street-smart approach to leadership that will change the way they see themselves, lead their teams, and impact business results.
