If the thought leadership round tables were not enough, you can also participate in industry specific forums. These four-hour sessions focus on the major challenges and opportunities confronting specific industries in the business world today. Learn how your colleagues have approached similar situations, brainstorm and take away great ideas for your own use.
Each industry's session is facilitated by a forum host with co-moderators. The format is a 15-minute long strategic view of the challenges and opportunity from notable industry leaders. This is followed by moderated panel discussions where you can participate in an interactive dialog with the leaders who have presented. Generally speaking a number of smaller focused roundtable discussions then occur on specific areas of interest. Many of these discussions continue to occur long after the close of the conference.
This years industry forums include, but are not limited to:
1. Healthcare, hosted by Valeant Pharmaceuticals
2. Defense, hosted by Raytheon
3. Energy, hosted by Chevron
4. IT/Software, hosted by Six Sigma Advantage
