CEO Innovation: Solving the Biggest Threat to Your Business Success

Thursday, July 21, 2022 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. PDT

CEO Innovation: Solving the Biggest Threat to Your Business Success

In today’s chaotic markets, unlearning has become just as important as learning.

Hear what our speaker has to say about the value you’ll receive from attending:


The biggest threat to your business may not be new technologies, changing markets or unseen competitors. It’s what you think you know and what made you successful to date.

Holly will show you how to uncover the “thought bubbles” floating around in your head that keep you stuck in the past. Then she will show you how to get unstuck, replace the old with the new, and stay focused to get the results you want.

It’s not easy. It is possible.

What will you learn from this CEO Climb Event on leadership innovation?

An interactive, upbeat approach to incorporating thinking differently into almost everything you do. The Climb Event focuses on:

  • Exploring why and how our success gets us stuck and exposing participants’ current decision-making and thinking processes
  • Changing our thinking to get clear on what is possible
  • Unlearning tried and true innovation eradicators

Value to CEOs and Leaders

Holly guides attendees through how to practice innovation techniques, including:

  • Balancing the big picture and the details
  • Focusing on a target
  • Challenging assumptions
  • Changing perspectives
  • Questioning the right answer
