Traditional management deals simply with goals and objectives and the tasks needed to reach them. It is top down with relatively little room for questions or alternate approaches. Leadership relies on more than just managing people. It relies on empowerment, engagement, collaboration and actually distributing leadership responsibilities at EVERY level of the organization, from the part-timer right up to the CEO.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
