The 2016 GMA Leadership Forum at The Greenbrier is only a few weeks away and hopefully you’re lucky enough to be attending this invitation only CPG industry event. This year’s Keynote Signature Series Speakers consisting of General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) Former U.S. Secretary of State, Greg Foran President and CEO of Walmart U.S. and Peyton Manning Legendary NFL Quarterback and Multi Super Bowl Champion jumped out at us and we’re looking forward to learning a thing or two from these esteemed individuals.

At this year’s event you can look forward to:

Education Sessions:
We’ll hear from pioneering keynote speakers and participate in a series of breakout sessions on topics on the latest industry insights and market trends, from Big Data and supply chain efficiencies to the shifting retail environment, plus more. There are over 15 session topics to choose from to meet your professional discipline.

Networking Events:
There will be plenty of one-on-one time our industry peers and we’ll be able to make new connections within the CPG community during the casual barbecue, receptions, and award ceremonies.

Emerging Leaders:
Now held during the GMA Leadership Forum only, individually invited, next generation executives will participate in the Emerging Leaders Program with a pre-conference session focusing on professional development in operational management and leadership. They will also join CEO attendees for the CEO Leadership Forum and Emerging Leaders Dinner on Friday evening.

Presidents and CEOs:
The annual CEO Leadership Forum will be offered during this event to provide content geared specifically toward CPG presidents and CEOs. CEOs and spouses will participate in the CEO Leadership Forum and Emerging Leaders Dinner and on Saturday, CEOs will reconvene among themselves to engage in thoughtful discussions and thoroughly examine core industry topics in a tailored educational program.

Partner Power Connect:
Returning in 2016 due to its continued success, GMA member companies have the chance to meet one-on-one with various principal and partner-level associate members during a 45-minute exchange session. This is a phenomenal opportunity for both participants to understand respective goals and resources to better align capabilities with innovation.
