Bringing together leading minds

The 2019 Executive Leadership Exchange offered a new format by providing access to the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas. A casual evening reception kicked off an immersive, three-day, curated program designed to help attendees increase their participation in the global food and floral conversation, forge worthwhile connections and set the trends that advance our industry.

Our objectives at SXSW were to LEARN about the latest trends and activities, LEAD global food and floral conversations and ENGAGE in interactive exercises designed to capture creative thinking, encourage conceptual thinking and optimize the collaborative leadership experience.

The impact of being at this influential conference for our industry was invaluable. Executive leaders left stimulated and exhilarated, ready to infuse new ideas into their organizations and our industry!

Details on the 2020 Executive Leadership Exchange will be available soon!

"The Executive Leadership Exchange was an awesome opportunity to step away from the day-to-day and look at our business and industry from another perspective. I was able to apply the tidbits I walked away with as soon as I was back in the office — both personally and professionally."
