What Matters Most: Strategy, Culture, Talent

In order to lead their companies to the next level of success, top-tier leaders from across the fresh produce and floral industry gathered in Dallas, Texas for the 2017 Executive Leadership Symposium. While leadership experiences and backgrounds varied, all attendees shared the same objective: to sharpen their focus on what matters most when striving to positively impact business performance: Strategy, Culture and 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.
Thank you to all of the attendees and speakers who made this year’s 2017 Executive Leadership Symposium a success! Please keep an eye out for information on the 2018 event.
