Virtual Leadership Summit Examines the Reinvention and Convergence of Healthcare, Corporate America and Higher Education

“These crises have revealed the fragility of our systems in real time,” said Glenn Llopis, President of GLLG and Founder of the Leadership in the Age of Personalization movement. “Healthcare, Corporate America and Higher Education can no longer be viewed in silos anymore. Each sector needs the others. How we respond to this convergence will determine what our collective future will look like. We can’t expect people to change their mindset, attitude and behavior if the outdated standards remain the same.”

Over 40 speakers will discuss the collapse of standardization and why outdated systems and processes can no longer scale in today’s more personalized world. Speakers will also discuss the most immediate reinvention requirements across healthcare, corporate America and higher education centered on the following core themes:

  • The Overhaul and Restoration of Leadership
  • New Virtual Realities in a World of Brick & Mortar  
  • Reimaging Strategy Where Predictability is Unknown
