Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, announced today the integration of an exclusive CEO Think Tank to its flagship event, the Growth, Innovation & Leadership Congress on Corporate Growth (GIL). GIL is the industry's only event designed to support senior executives in their efforts to achieve sustainable, top-line growth.
"We see an urgent need for innovation in today's industries and corporations, and GIL is designed to address the most crucial needs of our time," states David Frigstad, Chairman of Frost & Sullivan. "The latest economic turmoil is forcing companies to embrace innovation not only to survive, but also to succeed. A company's dedication to innovation will drive overall strategy, performance, and results."
CEO 2009: Charting a Growth Course in Tumultuous Times is a new addition to this year's agenda for GIL 2009 North America, which will be held September 13 – 16, 2009 at the Hyatt Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch, Scottsdale, AZ. This is an extraordinary opportunity for senior executives to network and advance their ability to lead and accelerate corporate growth in a turbulent economy. The interactive think thank will tackle some of today's tough questions for CEOs in preparing them for the future.
CEO 2009 is just one of the many key components of Frost & Sullivan's Global Congress, which will take place in six major cities around the world in 2009. The event series bridges a global network of today's best thinkers, visionaries and thought leaders. CEOs and their Growth Teams return each year to take full advantage of this opportunity to develop relationships with one another and participate in candid discussions focused on rethinking and strengthening their companies' growth strategies.
"Today's financial crisis will change the course of several industries – yet change creates opportunity," continues Frigstad. "The most successful CEOs understand this, adopt a long-term view, and are ready to seize such opportunities in order to create a high-performing culture of growth and profit."
Frost & Sullivan is also honored to host a distinguished roster of growth leaders who will share their insights and best practices, as their achievements are formally recognized at the 2009 Growth Excellence Awards Banquet, a veritable who's who of the industry's premier growth companies and their leaders.
