The LeadingPRINT Summit is an intensive program developed exclusively for industry leaders who want to change the status quo and renew their lease on success. Based on the concept of radical innovation, attendees will learn the realities of business cycles and how to jump the “S-curve.” Learn how to prevent commoditization, cash flow pressure and sales slow-downs that drive a business to a dangerous tipping point. This five-hour intensive program mixes expert instruction, hands-on self-assessment exercises, and discussions with entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated their own business transformation. Each participant leaves with an action plan to apply immediate upon return to the shop.
