NEXT SESSION: April 22-23 2020 - Napa




We are rescheduling our April 22-23 2020 session of Spark due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Please read our announcement below.

Our community of Spark Forum participants represents an extraordinary group of leaders who volunteer their time, energy and ideas to further the agenda of enterprise transformation and innovation. Above all, we value the health and safety of our participants and the team driving our session.

After considering the possible risks and impacts to all parties by the spread of the coronavirus, we have decided to reschedule our April 22-23 session in Napa.

As you might imagine, rescheduling Spark was a difficult decision, but one that is aligned with our values and commitment to protecting our community. This is one of the most important things we can do as leaders.
