Spark Growth Leader Exchange

Today’s Decisions. Tomorrow’s Future.
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 -  1:30pm – 8:30pm

Innovation keeps existing companies alive and is the source for launching new ones. Whether product, service, or business model – it is innovation that provides a relevant edge on value proposition in a rapidly changing global marketplace. We can debate the nuances of invention and innovation, however in the world we live in, if you don’t navigate change you will cease to be relevant. Whether you are a business, an organization or a community, the marketplace rewards those that provide value and those that don’t disappear.

With great change, comes great opportunities and event greater challenges. With the lines more blurred than ever between public, private and independent sectors and a global interdependence – as leaders we will be stretched in how we communicate, collaborate, and implement.

The agenda for the event from 1:30pm-6pm includes keynotes, panels and lightning talks to stretch the imagination and inspire. An evening reception and dinner follow at 6pm to meet the leaders and build relationships, closing with fireside chat finale of “Today’s Decisions. Tomorrow’s Future.”

We are in a time of unprecedented change, with major new challenges facing us every day. As leaders, thinkers and problem solvers, even the unspoken rules of business and innovation we once used no longer apply. For the future of your business, how you manage change is as important as knowing what changes to make.

Panel Discussions:

“Business Pillars Speak on Community and Staying Relevant in a Dynamic Marketplace” - How do we define success?  Hear how some business leaders define their roles in community, what they are doing to stay competitive and what BOLD looks like as we step into tomorrow.

“The Future is Here” - Visibly in just a few short years, connectivity, mobility and data have radically impacted the way we live and do business. What changes have you made and what will you need to do as you move into tomorrow?
