Three of the industry's most innovative thinkers will urge senior leaders to rethink the way they lead at the NEW Executive Leaders Forum 2015, July 28-30 outside Los Angeles. More than 300 retail and consumer goods executives are expected to attend the invitation-only event at Terranea Resort.

Cindy Kent, president and general manager of 3M's Drug Delivery Systems Division; Maria Renz, technical advisor to Jeff Bezos at Amazon.com Inc.; and Marcus Shingles, senior principal for Deloitte Consulting's Innovation Group, will challenge industry leaders to achieve new personal and professional heights by leading change in their organizations. The three will present their insights during 20-minute NEWTalk presentations at the NEW Forum 2015, themed "Creative Disruption."

Kent will offer real-world advice for abandoning traditional leadership styles to nurture a more collaborative, transparent workplace during "Disrupting Leadership: Game On!"

Renz will have Forum attendees "Rethinking 'Customer First," when she shares her personal story of embracing disruption and how it led to her role at the right hand of the CEO of the world's largest online retailer.

During his NEWTalk "Riding the Wave of Exponential Innovation," Shingles will address the vast opportunity and real threats associated with today's rapid pace of discovery and invention and speak to new business models that can create an endless array of new products, services and businesses.

The three featured speakers will continue the conversation during 75-minute "Deep Dive Discussion" breakout sessions for smaller groups.

The NEW Executive Leaders Forum is designed for senior executives. Attendance is reserved for women and men at the vice president level and above and is limited by company. For more information on attending the NEW Forum 2015, contact your NEW Ambassador.
