It’s peak Signal season here at Signal360 headquarters, with planning in full stride for the 12th annual edition of P&G’s Signal Summit this July 12th. We have a great program planned and you are welcome to join!

Even after organizing many Signal events, every year feels like a new adventure. Our job is to create a program that is relevant and impactful for everyone who attends – and last year, you numbered more than 5,000! Context is important and constantly changing, which makes planning Signal so interesting. There are always new topics to explore and speakers to bring to the stage. Our June Signal Conversation provides a peek into this year’s event and how we designed the program.

Our theme for this year is “Reset the Bar for Superior Performance and Irresistible Innovation,” striking a balance between navigating today’s business challenges and innovating for the future. Artificial intelligence will be a prominent topic for many sessions. But so will supply chain innovation, employee experience, and sustainability – all critical elements of a successful business today and tomorrow.

A critical thread throughout the 12th Annual Signal Summit will be how to deliver superior performance across business fundamentals. This requires consistent consumer focus and operational excellence, combined with agility and adaptability. In turn, companies create a culture where people challenge themselves and others to redefine what success looks like. 

For Signal 2023 we have a line-up of great speakers who will inspire and educate us on how to reset the bar:
