Conference of 33

Councilors will be engaged throughout the conference, where we will cover acutely relevant topics within the innovation-strategy network; creating a platform for senior executives to obtain actionable points to support their business goals.

When and Where

The Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, May 23rd - 24th


Conference objectives

  • BUILD COMMUNITY: Facilitate strong connections between individual society members, and as a cohesive community
  • PROVIDE IMMEDIATE VALUE: Provide the outlet for members to generate and share concrete ideas they can apply directly to their daily work


Design principles

  • Build in significant time for unstructured networking
  • Create intimate and safe spaces where members can share their passions, successes, and failures
  • Leave members feeling inspired by an enhanced capability and concrete ideas
  • Participants to be treated as experts instead of as an audience - emphasizing peer to peer learning, with balance tilted towards small group workshops and shorter talks instead of lengthy presentations to a passive audience
  • Ensure speakers are of top quality
  • Strike a tone that is fun and creative
  • Create a tangible output that can serve as a reference resource after the convening
