Session Program Details

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16

12:30 – 1:30 PM | Predicting the Psyche of the 2030 Consumer
Opening Keynote Luncheon
We know the demographics. We’re studying the differences in generational cultures. But are we really ready to reach the millennial and Gen X consumer?

These consumers aren’t just different demographically. For the next 10 years, they—and we—will be facing what McKinsey predicts will be five dominant forces driving economic change over the next 10 years: the changing face of the consumer; geopolitical power shifts; the rise of the sharing economy; the prevalence of connected mobile devices; and business shifts such as increased direct-to-consumer models. At the same time in the United States, we’ll see the baby boomers retiring, likely counseled by millennials and Gen Xers.

This session looks ahead to probable scenarios rising from the decade-defining convergence and the customer profiles these generate. Gain thought-provoking insights that will set the table for the key themes of this year’s Chief Executive Summit: future-proofing for long-term growth.


MEET THE OPENING KEYNOTE SPEAKER

NEIL HOWE, best-selling author and national speaker, is a renowned authority on generations in America. He gives readers and audiences powerful insights into who today’s generations are, what motivates them as consumers and workers, and how they will shape our national future. Learn more.


1:30 – 2:30 PM | Competitive Alternatives to Senior Living
Panel Discussion
Senior living as a housing choice for those 75 or older has remained at 10% penetration for the past 10 years.  How does the current senior living business model compete against home care services, 55+ living, health systems, and insurers entering the senior living space? How has the sharing economy’s services sector made it easier for seniors to stay in their own homes?

Engage in a provocative discussion with leaders from these sectors to learn how they view the market, and decide for yourself if your future-proofing strategy should directly address these competitive alternatives to senior living.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17

8:00 9:00 AM | The Facts About Argentum’s Standards Initiative
Town Hall Breakfast

Much has been written and said about Argentum’s standards initiative over the past several years, including whether or not the industry should have standards. In our view, the most important question industry operators should be asking is, which standards should the industry plan to adopt, and why?

Join us for a breakfast discussion about where we are with this initiative and learn more about the impact of self-regulation and how it advances an industry’s reputation. Learn how you can engage with Argentum on these mission-critical initiatives, and ask questions in a candid, free-flowing dialogue.

9:00 – 10:15 AM | Evolving the Senior Living Business Model
Presentation Followed by CEO Panel Discussion
Many baby boomers see senior living as a have-to, not a want-to. How do we make senior living a positive choice? Some find the answer in new growth strategies such as multi-brand; others in new technologies; others in new concepts, such as multi-generational and mixed-use.

Hear a trusted industry insider speak for your future customer, followed by a reactor panel of industry leaders already making moves to evolve the senior living business model.

Get Adaptive: Workforce Concepts That Will Shape the Next Decade
Presentation Followed by CEO Panel Discussion
The senior living industry must recruit 1.4 million workers by 2025. In the current labor market, unemployment is at an all-time low. Demand for an adaptive workforce has never been higher. Some exemplary companies have figured out how to work the workforce paradox. They have low turnover rates and highly engaged employees.

In this illuminating talk, you’ll gain an understanding of how new approaches, concepts, and ideas are helping other industries build a future-facing workforce, followed by a reactor panel of industry leaders who will engage the group in a discussion on lessons learned and how they can be applied in your company.

12 – 1:30 PM |
Helming Successful Disruption
Closing Keynote Luncheon
Disruption is supposed to lead to something better for everyone, including the companies and businesses that get disrupted. But leaders are worried. Businesses are being disrupted at an ever increasing pace and technological advances are converging to create unprecedented dislocation. In this fast-paced and candid talk, serial disruptor Terry Jones reviews the top 10 technical forces of disruption and what you can do about it. You’ll learn about the new business models that are created from disruption, how startups are shedding old concepts to create simple models, and how to “own the edge” in your industry. Terry will be taking questions from the audience at the conclusion of his talk.
