The Premier Security Leadership Forum
Close to 350 attendees created a high energy, fast paced executive leadership program called “The Great Conversation” on March 3 & 4 in Seattle, WA.
The program kicked off with the Next Generation Security Leader forum with 87 senior risk, resilience, and security executives gathering to hear the emerging trends that impact the operational execution of their programs. One of the presentations, from Tim Rigg, CSO of Alcoa, continued at the next day’s event. Tim did a great job showing how to lead and navigate change through a highly collaborative approach with business and program leaders.
The two days are intentionally intense, high energy, and fast paced. And, according to conversations that occurred at the post event party, created the context and impetus for change.
One senior executive approached us and said (I am paraphrasing): “I get it now. I see what this is. I see what you are doing. Every one of these groups (The consultants, manufacturers, integrators, and security executives) all have their own unique perspective on our market. But, in isolation, it is an incomplete picture. Somehow The Great Conversation pulls these perspectives into a 360 degree force multiplier for the industry. In other words: a common operating picture.”
