Exclusively for data strategy leaders at large enterprises. No vendors, no selling. (Yes, really.)

This is the meeting for people leading the programs. Everyone in the room will be a senior decision maker. You’ll be talking with people who actually run their program, with experience and knowledge to share.

You’ll get unbiased insights. With no vendors, sponsors, or selling allowed, get honest answers from people who don’t have an agenda.

Leadership conversations you can’t experience anywhere else.

There’s no filming, no recording. Everyone has signed our strict confidentiality agreement. This makes for incredible conversations that you’ve got to be there to experience.

Dig into the real issues that never get discussed on panels, in analyst reports, or even back at the office — things like managing your team, dealing with vendors, and navigating internal politics. (You know, the real issues that come with your job.)

An agenda set by you and your peers.

If you’re going to spend your time and money going to a conference, you shouldn’t have to listen to panels chosen by a meeting planner or sponsor months in advance. Bring a list of your toughest challenges and see just how much this community can help you.

Leave inspired, energized, and better prepared to lead your program.
