We sat down with incoming EO Cincinnati president, Chris Mann, on his vision for the coming year and he has a few tricks up his sleeve that he's looking forward to sharing.
What's your vision for EO in 2021-2022?
The vision for the year is to connect our members again, build connections, and create kick-ass stories.
You want to create "Kickass Stories." What do we have to look forward to?
For some weird reason I’ve always wanted to play paintball against elite military special forces soldiers. So we’ve teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Project and are doing a ‘military vs entrepreneur’ paintball battle in September. It’s going to be brutal…in a fun way.
What excites you most about this year's board?
It’s just an amazing group of people who I’ve grown to be close friends with over the past few years. They say you should never work with your friends, but this is a volunteer position so I think it’s exempt, right?
What's your favorite part of being in EO?
The people I’ve met are amazing, but the things I’ve learned through the experiences that other members have shared has been transformational in both my business and my personal life.
