Directions and Lodging Information

Who Should Attend:
To encourage strategic alignment, we encourage representation across executive teams from mid- to large-sized corporations in technology, marketing, business development, and innovation strategy.

A Unique Experience:
Come to Madison to take some time out for real strategic thinking. This summit brings new ideas about how to innovate better, faster with expert presentations, showcasing, deep engagement with other executives, and report-outs from insights from our disruptive tech labs in a purposefully intimate setting.

This is not a canned set of talks, it is intended to be an immersive experience of rapid presentations, lively QA, small group discussions, and fireside chats with leading thinkers. You will steep in concrete ideas, science and real-world applications, not theory. Our goal is to help you refine your leadership toolkit and build a network of like-minded leaders while maximizing cross-industry learning and inspiring new ideas.
Kurt Kober, Director, Retail Digital Transformation, Clorox shares insights on successful startup collaboration.

Creating opportunities for deep-dive conversations on leadership, talent, and innovation strategy was key.
