ESA Leadership Summit Will Be Staged Live Online
The virtual event will offer components similar to the in-person ESA Leadership Summit events, such as one-on-one meetings and other activities.
DALLAS — The Electronic Security Association (ESA) announced Thursday it would forego an in-person staging of its annual Leadership Summit and instead host the event in a virtual format due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The virtual event — named ESA Leadership Summit Stay Connected — will be held Sept. 29-Oct. 1, connecting leaders with the content and contacts they need to thrive amidst uncertainty, according to an announcement. The summit will still deliver top-notch education, self-selected one-on-one meetings with vendors and purposeful networking events, ESA says.
“Our ESA members are continuing to drive value to their customers, evolving with safety standards and enriching their services,” says ESA CEO Merlin Guilbeau. “We can’t imagine a year without delivering the valuable content and connections that help them do this.”
The virtual event will offer components similar to the in-person ESA Leadership Summit events, such as one-on-one meetings and other activities to drive content to the industry’s leaders. There will be presentations and workshops hosted by The Ritz Carlton’s customer experience experts and sales leadership experts. Mike Staver, the author of “Leadership Isn’t for Cowards,” will be a featured presenter.
“Our world today is seeing a digital transformation and it is incumbent on us to evolve along with it,” says Guilbeau. “I’m working with our team to accelerate and further deliver on a digitally enhanced experience for our industry. We’re taking our sessions, networking events and one-on-one meeting experience to an engaging and interactive virtual platform.”
ESA will also deliver its annual Weinstock and Jackson award presentations on Sept. 30 and will play host to an interactive trivia night on Sept. 29.
In addition to the networking, presentations and one-on-one meetings with vendors, leaders from integration and monitoring companies will have the opportunity to watch 15-minute Tech and Service Lightning Presentations from the industry’s leading vendors. It’s an opportunity.
“This is what our industry does. We don’t give up. We adapt,” says Guilbeau.
