A Unique Opportunity ...

 As a GIS Leader, my problems were never about the technology or what GIS could do for the organization.  Like you, I needed to learn about leadership and management through the guidance and success stories of others to elevate me to the next level.  GIS leadership topics at industry conferences are scarce because they primarily focus on the GIS technology - the "what" we do, not the "why" we do it. 

"You can have all the technology in the world and the biggest budgets but if you don't know how to lead, it means nothing..."

There is a whole world of GIS expertise, experiences and results that are untapped that may have the answers to your problems.  It's a great feeling to connect and know someone has just shared you the keys to solving that nagging problem that has held your GIS program back from its full potential.  The GIS Leadership  Virtual Summit presented by GISSuccess.com is a culmination of industry need and the contribution of giving back to the community that shaped my career and thousands of others.

Summit Agenda

Through the power of virtual conferencing and the GISSuccess.com supporting community, we are able to present highly focused topics that matter most to you.  Learn from the Leading GIS industry experts as they share their insights and experiences to help you avoid mistakes and shorten your path to leadership success.
