What Matters Most: Strategy, Culture, Talent
During this transformative event, networking opportunities led to insightful conversations, which sparked new ideas, and generated revitalized strategies for challenges facing the industry. And a new “UnConference” format drew topic ideas from attendees at the start, creating space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity.
This event was punctuated by thought-provoking presentations from powerful thought-leaders including:
- Professor Frances Frei, Senior Associate Dean of Executive Education at Harvard Business School, who walked through two provocative case studies. Attendees witnessed first-hand her analytical process of revealing how businesses are able to achieve the unachievable.
- Seth Mattison, an internationally renowned expert and author on workforce trends and generational dynamics. Attendees received a snapshot of the trends and key shifts happening around talent management, change and innovation, leadership and the future of work.

In Their Words
An extraordinary experience chock-full of relevant and applicable learnings. I would highly recommend that any Senior Leader make the investment in themselves and their organization.
As the first recipient of the Tyler Phipps Memorial Scholarship, I am very grateful for the opportunity that was granted to me. The Executive Leadership Symposium was not an event we had traditionally attended. It is doubtful the resources would have been allocated now or in the future, without this opportunity. After attending the Symposium, I can safely say, I will be attending the future events. Though I have spent many years as an executive, I am finishing my first year in produce. This was a great opportunity to meet many who have spent their career in the industry. I look forward to becoming a fixture within the produce community.
The program exceeded my expectations. In a short period of time because of the way the program was structured not only did I meet and interact with different innovative intelligent colleagues in the industry, I learned a great deal because of the format to this program. The speakers were also excellent, very engaging I will definitely be attending next year.
It causes you to have self inflection points and gives you great insights to what leadership skill sets can improve the performance of your business as well as relationships.
This is the best program I’ve ever attended with a very open format that allows for self and business reflection on ways to improve your skills and your business performance.
This is the “must attend” event in the Produce Industry! Each year it gets better and better!
