Atlanta --The 2019 Executive Conference Planning Committee, chaired by TTI's Melanie Pizzey, has generated a slate of speakers all focused on leadership for what is expected to be a tumultuous decade: the 2020s. The theme is Vision 2020 - Leading with Clarity and this year's conference attendees will be enlightened by a stellar roster of speakers who are experts in economics, strategic planning, change management, talent development and disruptive technologies like 5G and transportation -- all seen through the lens of the impact on the electronic components industry.


"The planning committee has been diligent, and we are very grateful for all the time and effort they expended," commented Debbie Conyers, ECIA Vice President. "I'm confident the executives who attend will leave the conference in October well equipped to lead their organizations through the next decade with great success," she added.

As we continue to transition into Industry 4.0 a unique set of leadership skills is required to manage organizations through these dramatic shifts.” continued Melanie Pizzey, Executive Conference Chair. "Our committee is determined to make this conference the best one yet. Every speaker we chose has something vital to contribute to our message, which we believe is what every CEO and executive in our industry needs to understand in order to successfully lead their organization in the 2020s."
