Keynote addresses by creativity guru Sarah Lewis and famed leadership coach Dr. Ella Bell will frame three days of learning and networking at the NEW Leadership Summit 2014, Oct. 22-24. More than 1,000 executives and emerging leaders from the retail and consumer goods industry are expected to attend the three-day Summit at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.

The NEW Summit 2014, themed "Innovation You,” will offer seven workshops, 11 learning sessions, a c-suite roundtable, men’s workshop and a NEW Leadership Academy supersession. NEW members will network at the annual Summit Luncheon; a new Transitions Mixer that will connect peers in a similar career and life stage; and the Celebrating Excellence Awards Gala honoring the accomplishments and leaders in the Network’s 20 regions.

Opening keynote speaker Lewis is the author of the widely praised bestseller The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. Kirkus Reviews noted, "Lewis’ synthesis of history, biography and psychological research offers a thoughtful response to the question of how new ideas happen.” A faculty member at Yale’s School of Art, Lewis appears on Oprah's "Power List,” served on President Obama's Arts Policy Committee, and has held positions at the Tate Modern and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Closing keynote speaker Bell is the founder of ASCENT — Leading Multicultural Women to the Top. An associate professor of business administration at Dartmouth College, Bell is considered to be one of the leading experts in the management of race, gender and class in the workplace. She is coauthor of the groundbreaking book Our Separate Ways: Black and White Women and the Struggle for Professional Identity. Her latest book, Career GPS: Strategies for Women Navigating the New Corporate Landscape, offers proven techniques for women wishing to advance their careers in the fast-changing world of corporate America.
