Audacious enough? Collaborative enough? Are you ready to take your idea to market? We convene thought leaders and business leaders to share their thoughts, ideas and experience in accelerating innovation.
The pace of change demands our attention in all fields of life. Globalization, accelerating technology, instantaneous communication and demographic trends are revolutionizing how we live, work and play. Enormous economic and employment benefits will flow to those regions and communities that successfully navigate the perils and opportunities. Economic opportunity is shifting to regions of talent that are entrepreneurial, technologically sophisticated and highly skilled. Leadership and collaborative strategies will be the keystone to ultimate success.
Impact through Collaboration
Highly interactive workshops will identify crucial trends, consider their implications and converge on strategic actions for transformational impact. The Summit process will break down the silos and make organizational, disciplinary and geographic boundaries irrelevant to problem-solving. A new kind of public-private leadership will be cultivated that is deeply engaged, extremely well networked and confident to act effectively across the Pacific Northwest Region. Participants will establish valuable relationships while engaged in designing realistic strategies and solutions in a fast-paced, content-packed, insight-infused and interactive environment.
