The Vision Council Announces Billy Beane, EVP of the Oakland A's as Featured Keynote for 2017 Executive Summit

Alexandria, VA (August 10, 2016) – The Vision Council announced today that Billy Beane will kick off the 2017 Executive Summit with his legendary presentation, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, setting the tone for an unforgettable event dedicated to Data Driven Leadership tactics.

This year's event, taking place January 25-27 at the Ritz Carlton, Orlando-Grande Lakes, Florida, takes an in-depth look at why and how to translate analytical results into business actions.

The line-up of dynamic speakers slated for the 2017 Executive Summit will reinforce the concept of how research, data and analytics can be used to innovate as opposed to merely validating. Attendees will gain valuable insight into best practices to go beyond measuring and look differently at statistical output to optimize products and services.

"Planning for the 2017 Executive Summit after last year's extraordinarily successful Jim Collins keynote was a tremendous, yet well managed challenge for the Program Committee" said Kevin Cross, Committee Chairman. "After months of vetting speaker and content ideas, we are proud to present the 2017 program focused on one of the most relevant topics in business today: Big Data and Business Information. Attendees will have access to the top thought leaders in this area and leave with actionable tactics to drive your business forward."

The Executive Summit is the must attend C-level business strategy and networking meeting for the industry. In 2016, there were over 330 attendees representing 168 unique companies. The Vision Council's Executive Summit provides the attendees with a one-of-a–kind opportunity to convene with their peers, share ideas and get a clear picture of our industry and where it's headed. Solid business sessions, leadership content and networking opportunities are key components of this event and consistently score high on the poll of reasons they attend.
