CLIC 2017:
Conquering Innovation Resistance

Join us for 1 1/2 days of brainstorming, networking, and applying insights from senior marketing revolutionaries who have made things CLIC (CMOs Leading Innovation Conference).

These sessions will provide you with fresh new approaches to:

  • Rapidly identify causes of innovation resistance
  • Overcome C-suite isolation
  • Turn cultural inertia into cultural commitment
  • Spend more time innovating and less time firefighting
  • Marshal leadership resources from diverse backgrounds
  • Exploit new technologies to accelerate growth

This year’s conference happens November 9-10 at the Airlie Retreat Center. The Center is located just 1 hour from Washington D.C., and 45 minutes from Dulles Airport. It’s the perfect setting to network, reflect, and collaborate with senior marketers.
