Tucson Young Professionals holds a monthly CEO Roundtable as an avenue of professional development for our members and the community.

We ask our featured speaker to candidly speak for 30-35 minutes about their story of successes, pitfalls and laughs on their journey to becoming a successful leader. Change and transition is often hard, and young professionals can often feel like discovering their value and progressing in their career feels like a lot of change and transition all at once. How do you do it well? Our CEO Roundtable speaker for July, Kathryn R Martin has over 30 years of experience leading arts and culture organizations and mentoring consultants during times of change and transition. As one of this country’s top Professional Interim CEO’s, Kathryn has led ten arts and culture organizations forward – currently serving as President & CEO of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Based in Santa Barbara, CA, Kathryn is creating a movement of leaders and organizations (at a crossroads of some kind) – who are finding and speaking their impact – their true value – so that they can help others.”
