Check out the highlights from last year’s event!

In this year’s summit, we will explore leadership thinking, behaviors and practices that are outside the familiar tenets of leadership that we have all repeatedly heard. We’ve all received plenty of training and development around leadership. This year, we are going to look at the spaces and blind spots which we may not have sufficiently explored.

This year’s Summit will include:

  • A networking dinner the evening before the event
  • A deep-dive discussion on leadership and Q&A session with Rex Tillerson


The intent of the 2021 Insigniam Executive Summit is to give the clients of Insigniam and their colleagues a forum in which to share and discuss their experiences, learn more about themselves and why they operate the way they do, and how to make a meaningful impact in elevating their organization’s results.

The discussions will be run so attendees can incorporate insights gleaned from actual experiences among high performers across a variety of disciplines and industries, and to create actionable common elements for generating breakthrough results.
