Each of our one-day HzX Exchanges -- held twice yearly in November and May -- explores a relevant theme shaping the 21st century and impacting the marketplace in the coming years. We seed interactive dialogue with novel research from the Midwest’s preeminent research universities. HzX Exchanges result in professional connections, collaborations and a collectively authored publication.

See a recap of a past Exchange that explored parallels between the metabolism of an organism and that of an organization. Executives from organizations including Johnson Controls, John Deere Worldwide and the MacArthur Foundation have referred to their time at previous Exchanges as “outstanding,” “impressive” and “the most relevant event I attended all year.”
