The organization’s annual Executive Summit is a three-day event fueled by content designed exclusively for executives at the vice president level and above.
This year’s summit theme, Thriving Executives Who Live It!—Sharing Culture, Strategy, and Talent Best Practices for More Effective Leadership, will provide a platform for attendees to immerse themselves in discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities centered around best-in-class leadership models that are making an impact within the foodservice ecosystem and beyond.
This year’s summit will feature keynote speakers including Harvard Professor and Senior Associate, Dean Frances Frei; Senior Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion, and Strategic Alliances at Major League Baseball, Wendy Lewis; internationally acclaimed speaker, top-ranked executive coach and creator of Intelligent Leadership, John Mattone; and Generation Z Expert James H.
