DALLAS—The ESA Leadership Summit is an annual event for company leaders in the electronic security and life safety industry. This year, the summit experience will be virtual as ESA Leadership Summit Stay Connected, held Sept. 29 – Oct. 1. The summit will connect leaders with content and contacts needed to thrive amidst uncertainty via education, self-selected one-on-one meetings with vendors and networking events.

“Our ESA Members are continuing to drive value to their customers, evolving with safety standards and enriching their services,” Merlin Guilbeau, CEO of ESA, said in the announcement. “We can’t imagine a year without delivering the valuable content and connections that help them do this.” 

The virtual #ProSecurity event will deliver all the components the industry has come to love about the one-on-one meeting event, driving content to the industry leaders in an innovative, responsible way.

“Our world today is seeing a digital transformation and it is incumbent on us to evolve along with it,” Guilbeau said. “I’m working with our team to accelerate and further deliver on a digitally enhanced experience for our industry. We’re taking our sessions, networking events and one-on-one meeting experience to an engaging and interactive virtual platform.” 

The Ritz Carlton’s customer experience and leadership experts, and published author of “Leadership Isn’t for Cowards” by Mike Staver will deliver presentations and workshops throughout the summit. ESA will also deliver its annual Weinstock and Jackson award presentations on Sept. 30 and will host an interactive trivia night on Sept. 29. 

In addition, leaders from integration and monitoring companies will have the opportunity to watch 15-minute Tech and Service Lightning Presentations from industry vendors. 

“This is what our industry does,” said Guilbeau. “We don’t give up. We adapt.”
