Executive Conference Chairman’s Lecture to Feature General Stanley McChrystal

This August, GMA will once again be hosting the Executive Conference - the premier industry event that brings retailers and manufacturers together to address the complex issues of the food, beverage and CPG business.

Built around the theme of Connecting Today to Grow Tomorrow, on August 25-27, 2012 at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO, the best minds in the industry will gather to share ideas, foster relationships and stimulate new thinking.

Highlighting the conference, the Chairman’s Lecture will feature General Stanley McChrystal, a four-star general, former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan and former leader of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), which oversees the military's most sensitive forces.

During the lecture, McChrystal will share his field-tested leadership lessons, stressing a uniquely inclusive model that focuses on building teams capable of relentlessly pursuing results. Citing stories from his career, McChrystal will reveal a four-star management strategy, concentrating on openness, teamwork and forward-thinking.

This year’s conference will also feature a new breed of session known as Executive Leadership Sessions, as well as the traditional Strategic Sessions, “Coffee With…” Sessions, and Leadership Luncheon.
