Leadership Summit 2018
Fashion Island Hotel, Newport Beach, CA
Wednesday, May 2, 6 p.m. – Friday, May 4, 11:30 a.m.
We all want to see. See the truth, see reality, see people, see the future, see our family more, and see our faith lived out Monday to Friday not just on Sunday. Would you join us in Newport Beach as we engage in cutting edge conversations that will help you see culture, business, faith, family and God in a fresh new relevant way?
Real learning happens over time, in community. Our team has worked, and will keep working, up to the day this learning collaboration event happens to bring you global experts who have thought deeply about the things most of us as leaders don’t make time to ponder. You’ll get to be with them and interact with them deeply. Their talks will be brief, but paradigm smashing, and then they’ll take your questions. Their wisdom + your implementation = company change, community change, and life change.
Join us and bring your spouse, bring your team or bring a friend who cares about living out their faith, Monday to Friday at work. We’ll do life together in community, ponder a talk, collaborate over a meal, think together, and hopefully even hear from God as we lean into learning at Leadership Summit 2018 in Newport Beach.
Our keynote and breakout presenters will be brief, yet deep and paradigm smashing. They’ll act as your Sherpa guides on the road to seeing things differently. When they’re done, they’ll take your questions and stick around to talk to you. Their wisdom, plus your God given talent and implementation, will equal company change, community change and life change. You’ll begin to see things differently through God’s eyes, not just your eyes, as we lean into learning.

A practical discussion designed to help business leaders navigate today’s cybersecurity challenges and avoid sinking like the Titanic. In the last year over 50% of U.S. businesses were victims of cybercrime, and according to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost for SMB businesses to clean up after a cybersecurity breach is $690,000. But what most don’t realize is that 80% of breaches are caused by employee negligence, and preventable vulnerabilities.
David lives by the personal creed "So that others may prosper!", whether helping TechMD stay ahead of an ever-changing technology landscape or serving as a high-school youth leader at his church. In early 2000, David founded SpamSoap, Inc., an email security & filtering solution, and since then he has been developing products, founding technology companies, and training business leaders on mitigating their risk and exposure to cybersecurity threats.
