Thank you for attending The Vision Council's 2018 Executive Summit - the premier, must-attend event for senior level management and business leaders in our industry. This year's event saw another record-breaking attendance number, with close to 400 industry leaders gathered together. The 2018 program theme Idea to Implementation focused on turning an idea to reality. The remarkable speakers at this year's event provided insight into this process to help you create opportunity and take stock of your methods and your ability to create a culture of ingenuity and innovation, communicate effectively to gain buy in, embrace risk, challenge yourself, welcome feedback, and - ultimately - execute, measure and adjust initiatives.
