Westport, CT — October 21, 2021 — HMG Strategy, the World’s #1 digital platform for enabling technology executives to reimagine the enterprise and reshape the business world, is excited to be hosting its 2021 HMG Live! Silicon Valley Global Innovation Summit in-person on October 29 at the Hotel Nia in Menlo Park, CA. HMG Strategy’s highly interactive events bring together the world’s most distinguished and innovative business technology leaders to discuss the most pressing leadership, strategic, cultural, technology and career challenges and opportunities that they face today – and into the future.

World-class business technology and industry executives at the in-person 2021 HMG Live! Silicon Valley Global Innovation Summit will discuss how a ‘command-and-control’ leadership style no longer resonates with empowered employees, along with how a ‘Trust and Inspire’ leadership model is better suited to foster employee engagement and to spark collaboration and innovation in the changing workplace.

 “Every technology executive is wrestling with how to effectively hire, retain, recruit, grow and inspire a trusting, high-performing organization,” said Hunter Muller, President and CEO of HMG Strategy. “Our partnership with bestselling author and leading trust authority Stephen M.R. Covey dovetails perfectly into these critical challenges facing today’s business technology executive and offers leaders a practical guide for winning in the workplace – and in the marketplace.”
