Hosted by Fairfield University’s College of Arts and Sciences and presented by GLLG, a national workforce development and business strategy consulting group, the 2020 Leadership in the Age of Personalization Summit will critically analyze collective learning from the Covid-19 pandemic and nationwide social unrest to help leaders shape the future of healthcare, corporate America, and higher education.

The free, three-day virtual event powered by LightSpeedVT will be hosted online October 28–30, 2020, and will offer a unique learning experience that combines thought-provoking discussions with artistic storytelling interludes performed by international artists commissioned by the University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

More than 40 top-level executives and industry experts are scheduled to present at this year’s summit to discuss the collapse of standardization, and why outdated business systems and processes are becoming increasingly ineffective in today’s more personalized world. Speakers will also explore how innovative leaders are already reinventing healthcare, corporate America, and higher education centered on the following core themes:

  • The Overhaul and Restoration of Leadership
  • New Virtual Realities in a World of Brick and Mortar
  • Reimagining Strategy Where Predictability is Unknown
  • The Real Drivers of Transformation
  • Inclusion as a Growth Strategy
  • A Value Equation that Places the Individual in Front
  • The Fall of Benchmarking and the Rise of Individual Capacity

Among the list of national speakers scheduled to present are Fairfield University’s own President Mark R. Nemec, PhD; College of Arts and Sciences Dean Richard A. Greenwald, PhD; and College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean Scott Lacy, PhD, each lending their years of expertise to the summit’s higher education conversation.

Fairfield alumni Erin Moran ‘05, head of industry education at Google; Rich Miller-Murphy ‘78, executive director of laboratory and medical services at New York Blood Center Enterprises; and Bill Hulseman ‘98, independent academic consultant are also scheduled to present during the three-day event.

“The College of Arts and Sciences and the Quick Center for the Arts are proud to lead a national discussion focused on breaking down conventional silos in order to innovate and work through the remarkable challenges and opportunities of the historic moment we’re living in," Dr. Lacy said.
