ESA Leadership Summit to Emphasize Sharing Business Intelligence

IRVING, Texas — The 7th annual Electronic Security Association (ESA) Leadership Summit will focus on sharing business intelligence, allowing attendees to network with organization leaders outside the security trade. The event will take place Jan. 19-23 at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Fla.

“We want company leaders to leave with actionable plans to help them compete in the expanding market,” ESA President John Knox says.

This year, ESA has reached out to five business professionals outside of the electronic security industry to give attendees insight on how to improve operations. The conference will also provide more time for participants to network and learn from their peers, according to Steve Firestone, Select Security executive vice president and Leadership Summit advisor.

“We wanted to focus this year on giving attendees more than just a 30,000-foot overview of the relevant topics,” he says. “Our aim is to have them walk away with a list of practical ‘how-tos’ from each of the presenters. Several of the general sessions have been designed with subsequent breakout sessions, held by the keynote speakers that will guide the participants towards an understanding of how to take what they’ve learned and translate it into something they can use in their business successfully.”

During the weeklong event, ESA of Florida will host a golf tournament benefiting their Youth Scholarship Program. Additionally, ESA will present its Leadership Awards, which acknowledges the contributions of outstanding chapters and individual members who have made a positive impact on the security industry. The categories include:

  • Chartered Chapter of the Year
  • Chapter Executive Director of the Year
  • Chapter President of the Year
  • Chapter Newsletter of the Year
  • National Training School (NTS) Instructor of the Year
  • NTS Training Coordinator of the Year
  • Chapter Web site of the Year
