Small Giants Summit 2018: Authenticity

May 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - May 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

Small Giants Summit 2018: Authenticity

We’re excited to bring back the Small Giants Summit 2018 to the Garden Theater in Detroit, a classically-staged theater with exposed brick and intimate vibes to enrich your learning experience. The Small Giants Summit is a unique platform for elevated conversation on realities, promises, and practices of companies aspiring to grow with purpose and intention.  Expect two full days of challenges, celebration, learning and relationship building and a third experiential learning day where we visit Small Giants companies in Detroit, called the Day of Mojo (read more below).

Our theme for #SGCSummit2018 is Authenticity. Authenticity  is embedded into the very fabric of what makes the Small Giants Community so special – the people. Purpose-driven leaders who intentionally lead and engage with each other and their team members as their authentic selves. The 2018 Summit will celebrate and deepen our commitment as leaders to showing up authentically – a practice that leads to meaningful conversations, deeper relationships, the sharing of ideas, and ultimately, living out the six qualities of a Small Giant day in and day out.

The #SGCSummit2018 will feature:

  • Fast-paced storytelling designed to get peer perspectives on issues most relevant to you.
  • Interactive workshop sessions.
  • Purposeful, guided networking sessions.
  • Interactive panels of Small Giants bringing you into their stories of growth, change, and impact with a focus on the intersection of philosophy and best practices.
  • Insights from international Small Giants leaders about building a great company while managing different cultures.
  • Group social events that highlight the host city’s unique history, personality, and values.
  • Day of Mojo – immersive, on-site visits to local Small Giants companies, delivering practical examples of purpose-driven business in action.

Day of Mojo! By popular demand, we’re making the Day of Mojo part of the Summit experience for everyone. Like you, we know the value of practical learning and seeing Small Giants companies in action, which is why we’re visiting Small Giants companies in Detroit!

Curious about the Day of Mojo? See attendees past experience.
