The Great Conversation - Seattle

TGC Seattle header regonline 770

The Great Conversation in Security is designed and produced by The Sage Group® to advance the value of all the stakeholders in the risk, resilience and security industry through a strategically organized and executed leadership event. The event offers attendees industry case studies from end users providing valuable insights on how to assess, design and deploy solutions that improve the performance and value of their security organization.

A ‘Great Conversation’ demands attention to relationships. The best ideas come from the collective strength of the stakeholders in the industry. We listen to their questions, challenges and their answers. This is the starting point. Then we search for the threads that seem to bind them together, creating the themes for the event.

Here is what we have heard this year that will drive the conversations for the 2014 events:

Leadership and Change: Leadership is crucial to the success of our programs.

The Common Operating Picture: Every executive must have a way to see the whole picture to ensure an effective and disciplined response that generates value and mitigates risk.

The Key Technology Platforms of Security: And how they are changing, improving and integrating to serve you better.

The Great Conversation is expanding the format to provide a limited invitation to the Security Executive Council’s Next Generation Security Leader (NGSL) Program (Phase II). The program will be held the day before the Great Conversation. This will inform and infuse the Great Conversation and create the platform for a higher level discussion at the President’s Dinner and the next day’s event. Anyone registered for the NGSL Program will include registration for the Great Conversation.

The Next Generation Security Leader Program arms current and emerging leaders with the needed tools for professional development and continuous organizational improvement. This high-value development opportunity has drawn the participation and endorsements of top security leaders and their teams from companies such as Boeing, Bose, Capital One, Dell, Delta Airlines, Cummins, Kohler, Massachusetts General Hospital, Microsoft, and Raytheon.  Teams are encouraged to enroll to increase the leadership quotient of the organization.

Register today for the complete Great Conversation Event that includes the Next Generation Security Leader Program, a seat at the ASG President's Dinner and admission to The Great Conversation Technology Showcase for a discounted price of only $950 You can also register for them separately if you are unable to join us for the two day event.
