NEW YORK—“Imagination + Invention – Succeeding In A Culture of Change” is the theme of Vision Monday’s 2013 Global Leadership Summit, to be held here March 13.

Registration will open soon for the 7th annual, day-long event and exclusive forum, geared to senior-level executives in the retail, professional, lab and supplier sectors of the optical industry. The VM Global Leadership Summit brings together compelling speakers from within and outside the industry offering fresh thinking and provocative perspectives.

“Today’s lightning speed of business and the rapid arrival of disruptive technology are creating both competition and growth possibilities,” said Marge Axelrad, SVP and editorial director of Vision Monday. “But how do business leaders embrace new ideas and spur innovation within their existing cultures? Our program will touch on such developments as mobile health trends and new health care influencers as well as ‘omni-channel’ retailing and radical new technologies. The goals of the VM Summit are to provoke discussion, foster great networking opportunities and inspire ideas for senior decisionmakers in 2013 and beyond.”
