Our Participants Say It Best
CIO, General Motors Corporation
“I was able to hear innovative ways to implement new technologies and understand the real issues associated with their adoption. I could network with senior business leaders who share the same issues and challenges, and I could speak candidly with key supplies to determine if their products were a good fit for us to meet our business challenges.”
Innovation Champion, Caterpillar, Inc.
Networking with 300 diverse thought leaders is nothing short of incredible and many of them face the same business challenges and opportunities that I do. The speakers and activities helped me connect technologies in the “white space.” This experience will literally change how I communicate change and drive an innovation culture at my company.
– Chief Opertaing Officer, Bell-Carter Foods, Inc.
I found this event to push my own thinking beyond the boundaries put in place by my own operating environment. This event left me feeling more excited about the future and wanting to be a bigger player in the creation of that future.
Chief Technology Officer, City of Portland
I was surprised how all the keynotes and collaboration sessions resonated with many of the themes and disruptive innovation initiatives we are working on at the City of Portland. This value added event will have me returning in the future!
Crystal Collier, Head of Strategy, Programs and Insights, Electronic Arts (EA)
The Growth, Innovation, and Leadership Executive Summit was the most thought-provoking event I’ve attended this year. I heard about leading practices in design thinking, lean and agile design, and emerging technology from expert practitioners who left me more excited about the future of Customer Experience than ever. I look forward to continuing the conversations these sessions started!

I was pleasantly surprised with the number of ‘C Level’ executives in attendance. This is the level where we get the most robust idea exchanges and challenges. I was also able to take away several nuggets of ideas.
Executive Vice President, Wells Fargo
Generous sharing of diverse perspectives as well as love the small intimate topical exchanges.
Chief Innovation Catalyst, SAP Ventures
Frost & Sullivan organized an invaluable event on innovation this year. The highly collaborative, interactive format is unique and allows for great networking with peers, senior executives who traveled from across the country to participate. While there were over 300 participants, it felt intimate enough to make meaningful connections that I couldn’t have made elsewhere.
