Travel is a big part of the Alliance Concepts ethos, as we expand our personal and professional horizons with every trip. Leadership conferences are regular entries on our travel calendar because they offer so much value. Nick, our firm’s President, explained that these events put us in the same room with the most accomplished leaders in our industry. Here are a few of the benefits we gain from attending leadership conferences:
• Fresh Insights: During keynote speeches and as we interact face-to-face with influential leaders, we learn so many new techniques and approaches at leadership events. When we return to the Alliance Concepts office, we’re inspired to put these nuggets of wisdom to good use.
• New Contacts: We make the most of every networking opportunity. Leadership conferences are some of the best chances to connect with top performers from our field. We do research on who might be in attendance so that we have some icebreakers handy. This leads to more productive discussions and valuable new connections.
• Stronger Bonds: Getting away from the office also lets us get to know our teammates better on a personal level. We explore everything a city has to offer when we hit the road together, making memories and creating momentum for winning teamwork back on the job.
We’re ready to keep refining our leadership skills at conferences all over the country. Follow Alliance Concepts on Twitter for more on how we grow through travel.
