Accelerate Leadership

Organizations everywhere are searching for ways to streamline their talent and business development journey. They are looking for ways to maximize return on people-focused initiatives and do it all in the most efficient way possible. For the 2015 Summit, we are aligning the flow of sessions and focusing content around this idea; from Picking Stars Early to Create Lasting Change, and plenty of fascinating topics in between.
