  • Kicking off with tapas and signature cocktails, attendees can connect with peers across industries.
    Note: Please arrive on time for pre-event hors d’oeuvres.

    Check back as we confirm speakers.

    Now comes your turn to share ideas. Each table is headed by a Discussion Leader, ready with questions based on the keynote panel topic. Tables will collectively brainstorm opportunities to address challenges addressed by the panel. Attendees will then switch tables twice to discuss a new set of challenges and questions with a different group of peers. This allows attendees to connect and have in-depth conversations with more peers bringing unique perspectives from across different disciplines and industries.

    Discussions will continue to percolate across the entire space as attendees have the opportunity to refresh drinks and tapas.

    The program closes by wrapping up the evening’s conversation into tangible takeaways to implement into your own organization.

    Speakers are recommended and vetted by the Leadership.

    Check back regularly for speaker announcements.

    Solutions providers are vetted to include only the organizations bringing the most successful and innovative solutions to market. Sponsors must be approved by the Leadership Board.
