The future is ours to create. If we can embrace the massive change surrounding us, anticipate, plan and innovate — we can be the disruptors rather than the disrupted. Join us for our second Michigan Leadership Conference where we gather top thought leaders to discuss and make sense out of our rapidly changing business models.
Our 2019 Michigan Leadership Conference will be an experience you will never forget. As our industry faces new competition, consolidation, automation and technological advances, if you’re not scared, you’re not paying attention. We’re here to relieve some of that angst as the top leaders in our association gather to share ideas on how to be the disruptors rather than the disrupted.
At The Henry (a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel) just a short distance from the Ford Motor Company headquarters, we will take a look at what innovation really means and how to apply it. In 1903, our industry first organized with the association that would become PPAI. That is also the year that Henry Ford and eleven investors incorporated the Ford Motor Company. Driving Directions
At the Michigan Leadership Conference, top industry professionals will discuss and share with you the factors that are changing our industries and how you can thrive in the face of massive change through innovation and strategic foresight.
