More than 900 industry leaders and emerging leaders are expected to "Profit from the Experience” at the NEW Leadership Summit 2012, Oct. 22-24 at the Omni Dallas Hotel in Dallas.

The industry’s largest diversity event will focus on ways to reinvigorate your career, organization and life. Featured speakers will include sociologist, educator and former talk show host Dr. Bertice Berry, author of the best-selling memoir The Ties That Bind: A Memoir of Race, Memory and Redemption.

Berry will be joined on the program by extreme athlete Yvonne Camus, a participant in the Eco-Challenge, the world champion racing adventure conceived by television producer Mark Burnett. Camus will share her experiences as a member of the first rookie team to complete the grueling competition and offer insights on teamwork and rising to the challenges of training, preparation and execution.

The panel will include Irene Chang Britt, president of Pepperidge Farm; Tom Falk, president of Kimberly-Clark Corporation; Susan Chambers, chief people officer for Walmart; and Bhavdeep Singh, executive vice president, operations for Ahold USA.
