A Review: 2017 SHSMD Executive Dialogue
Between February 21–22, 2017, a group of senior-level strategic executives gathered in Scottsdale, AZ for the SHSMD Executive Dialogue: Leading Change, an interactive seminar with in-depth dialogue about healthcare strategy and marketing. I had the pleasure to attend the meeting and learn from both presenters and other attendees.
The learning objectives for this event were the following:
- Critically consider major changes in healthcare and explore implications for healthcare strategy professionals.
- Examine in-depth, significant organizational imperatives and the role strategic leaders play in effective planning, implementation, and execution.
- Gain new insights into the expertise and approaches that will lead to personal and organizational success through open dialogue with recognized experts, along with peer strategic leaders.
With 3 speakers at this conference, one presentation from a sponsor, and an hour of Q&A and discussion after each speaker, there was a great deal of interaction and dialogue between the attendees. There were forty attendees, creating a true sense of intimacy and openness among those in attendance. In short, it was a very worthwhile meeting.
