NEW IN 2024NAW Communities

In addition to the world-class programming and keynote remarks attendees have come to expect from the Executive Summit mainstage, two communities will be introduced in 2024 to provide CEOs and leading executives the opportunity to engage in collaborative learning and knowledge-sharing with others who have similar interest areas and goals. Executive Summit attendees should self-select between:

  1. Commercial Growth Community –  is intended for those with significant interest and experience in sales, marketing, business development, and customer experience. 
  1. Operational Excellence Community – is intended for attendees with an expressed interest in operations, technology, people services, and finance. 

The concurrent themes through both communities will be innovation and business strategy, leveraging new ideas and perspectives to provide attendees with a competitive advantage. These communities are part of the full program and will meet together three separate times throughout the duration of the event.
