ECPA’s annual C-Suite Symposium presents the only opportunity within Christian publishing where C-level executives—from large to small houses—can engage at a meaningful level with expert information and trends relevant to their unique roles in leading the industry.


Anticipating the Future: Developing a Strategy for Leading Innovation

The top leaders of Christian publishing will gather September 22-24 at the Hyatt Regency in Boston for the industry's annual C-Suite Symposium. Our gathering will focus on the theme, “Anticipating the Future” and our program will provide industry leaders with a roadmap to lead innovation in their companies.

Skot Welch principal at Global Bridgebuilders and a premiere innovation strategist, will facilitate a series of discussions on The Three-Box Solution, a framework leaders are using to meet the performance requirements of their existing business while dramatically reinventing it.

Other C-Suite Symposium program features and speakers will stimulate discussion and action points around key topics and strategies as we anticipate the future of our industry. Registration is now open.
