About the Executive Summit


All NEW Executive Summit

Exclusively focused on the issues and trends dominating the IT & Engineering Staffing and Solutions industry, this highly interactive program will explore the unique challenges and opportunities of your executive team. Join thought leaders and colleagues from around the country as we highlight and discuss strategies and solutions embraced by the most successful firms.

In addition to inspiring keynotes and abundant formal and informal networking opportunities over food and drink, the content is organized into four key areas critical for success. Anchored by a general session, each of the four topics will be explored through breakouts as well as interactive roundtables and workshops.

  • The Talent Challenge – Whether its innovative recruiting strategies that enable you to better meet your clients’ needs in an environment where IT talent is in such short supply to how to build your own internal team, overcoming the talent challenge is essential to success.
  • Strategic Leadership – With no firm having an inherent advantage over others, why is it that a few firms are able to achieve extraordinary levels of growth and profitability? In a word, leadership! From building a world-class culture to embracing data driven management and navigating challenging times, we will identify and discuss what it takes to be a successful leader and leadership team in today’s environment.  
  • Enhancing Enterprise Value – Starting with the end in mind, we will explore the core drivers of enterprise value: growth and profitability. What are the strategies and tactics successful IT & Engineering Staffing and Solutions firms are employing to accelerate growth and increase profitability? 
  • Innovation and the Future of the Industry – Look around. Few industries are untouched or impervious to disruption from innovative technologies or business models.  Professional Staffing is not the exception!  Join us for this interactive exploration of what it will take to be successful in the future. Hint: The future is here. You need to begin now!
