"Companies need to embrace innovation to not only survive, but to gain greater market share and be positioned for success upon the rebound”. So spoke David Frigstad, Chairman of Frost & Sullivan, live on CNBC this morning at 11.45 am.
Mr Frigstad appeared on CNBC’s business news programme “Strictly Money” where he highlighted a strategic point of view for industries and sectors to grow in light of today’s economic climate.
Mr Frigstad’s current visit to the United Kingdom is for Frost & Sullivan’s Global Congress on Corporate Growth. ‘GIL 2009: Europe’ will kick off tomorrow, 19 May 2009, at the Sofitel St James in London and continue through Wednesday. Complimenting Frigstad’s positive outlook on the economy will be Holger Schmieding, Chief Economist – Europe with Bank of America / Merrill Lynch whose keynote presentation - Eye on the Economy: Smart Strategies to Survive and Prosper - will also be delivered to GIL 2009 participants on Wednesday.
GIL 2009: Europe is just one of the many cities where the growth partnership company has launched it’s North America Growth, Innovation and Leadership Congress.
GIL Global is the industry's only event designed to support senior executives in their efforts to achieve sustainable, top-line growth. For two days London will become the agora for CEOs, their teams and industry luminaries of a global community that explores tools and strategies to build a solid growth process.
"The real purpose of GIL is to focus on the CEO’s number one top priority: growth," explains David Frigstad, Chairman of Frost & Sullivan. "We're looking at growth, innovation and leadership as three essential characteristics that enable companies to stay ahead of the competition and gain greater market share within their industries. Our thought leaders deliver the necessary tools, strategies, and best practices that help support CEOs and their growth teams."
The congress will provide a forum for delegates to brainstorm, network and structure strategic partnerships to achieve their growth goals, while keeping a keen eye on the economy. It will deliver thought leadership, real world case studies, best practices, and key strategies that companies can employ. Participants will examine the dynamics of growth and gain access to critical expertise that will help differentiate their companies from the competition and engage in interactive think tanks that will teach organizations how to identify, analyse, and prioritise opportunities in their respective industries. There will be interactive sessions examining global market opportunities and insights in various industries.
