2021 Leadership Summit: Adaptability - The New Competitive Advantage

An annual favorite! The Leadership Summit, hosted by the NC TECH Board of Directors and Advisors, gathers executives from across North Carolina at the Pinehurst Resort for an opportunity to hear from influential leaders on various topics from talent and leadership to the economy. The agenda includes keynote presentations, interactive panel discussions and plenty of time for networking.  

The 2021 summit theme is Adaptability: The New Competitive Advantage. 

The last 15 months have been an exercise in shifting and pivoting to meet customer, employee and community needs like we have never seen before. This has led to huge challenges as well as some tremendous successes and the key ingredient to overcoming the obstacles and reaching key goals has been adaptability.

While the pandemic is hopefully nearing an end, change and transition will always be a constant  now at an even more accelerated pace.  During this year’s Leadership Summit, we will explore how to continue to make adaptability your competitive advantage to improve customer and employee outcomes within your organization.
