Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
Advanced Solutions International (ASI), the largest, privately-owned global provider of software for member and donor-based not-for-profits, today announced the 2014 schedule of its executive-level iMIS Business Excellence Forum (iBEF) events for clients. A total of 15 North American roundtables will be held — up from 9 in 2013. Additional events will be held later in the year in the United Kingdom and the Asia-Pacific region.
The iBEF program helps clients achieve greater business value by optimizing their iMIS system. These complimentary iBEF Executive Conferences are hosted by ASI senior staff and limited to a small group of senior executives. The agenda is free-flowing and allows executives to network and discuss issues with their peers, develop strategic plans, share best practices, see the latest iMIS product development plans, learn about the iBEF community planning tools, and provide direct feedback to ASI senior management. The informal setting encourages attendees to think creatively and have some fun.
The theme for the 2014 events is “Reassess, Reprioritize & Reposition” and presentations will cover some of the latest trends and issues, including strategic engagement, information curation, data-driven decision making, innovation, and an exploration of both “The Sky is Falling” and “The Sky’s the Limit” attitudes and how executives can successfully lead their organizations through either scenario.
“The response we received to our 2013 iBEF program was overwhelming, so we’re expanding the North American schedule to accommodate the phenomenal interest,” said Nathan Slovin, Director of ASI’s Client Excellence Programs. “These events provide a unique forum for C-Level executives to meet with their peers in a casual setting where they can be completely candid. The roundtables always spark new ideas and foster greater industry relationships.”
The program begins with breakfast at 8:30am and concludes by 2:00pm. The full 2014 iBEF calendar is available at http://www.advsol.com/ibefevents.
