IN SYNERGY - No One Leads Alone

Thursday, March 7, 2024 – March 9, 2024
Westin Galleria Dallas | 13340 Dallas Parkway Dallas, TX 75240

This year, we’re exploring collaboration as a source of power & the energy that emerges when we bring our diverse skills, perspectives and strengths together to create a unified & more powerful outcome than what could be achieved individually. It’s about inspiring, extracting and harnessing the collective intelligence, creativity, culture and motivation of a team to enhance the effectiveness of leadership.
