Ignite 2024 is About…

Connecting to Our Ecosystem: Relationships are key to the success and health of the industry. The Ignite 2024 agenda is designed to challenge our thinking on issues such as navigating current geopolitical impacts, thriving in the current economic environment, and supply chain resiliency.

Connecting to Our Future: The best way to lead change is to anticipate it. Given the rapid rate of change in our world, it is critical we understand the forces shaping our ecosystem — such as A.I. and the exponential influx of data — and where/how innovation, sustainability and strong partnerships must align.

Connecting to Our Leadership: As leaders, we each have an influential role to play in the success and health of the industry. At Ignite 2024, you’ll have a chance to consider your leadership, and the leadership of your direct reports, not only in our respective companies but also in our industry. It’s an opportunity to focus on preparing for and navigating change, building inspiring work cultures, and leading with integrity, mission and purpose.
