The 2016 Avnet Global Leadership Summit brings together the senior leaders from across Avnet globally. By invitation only, the 2016 GLS #abetterplace will be full of energy, encourage ideas, spark curiosity, provide inspiration, promote networking and set the stage that we need Avnet leaders to be agile, nimble and have the ability to think and behave differently. Throughout the summit – from our content and sessions to our creative assets and staging – leaders will be engaged in a non-traditional and more disruptive format, while keeping the integrity of the event intact. The overarching purpose of the event is to reinforce alignment of Avnet’s culture, strategies and core values, while providing clarification on what behaviors and attitudes are expected from Avnet’s top global leaders. This will be achieved through: • Presentations on key business topics • Collaboration through social and other interactive events • Clearly communicated takeaways for leaders to take back to their teams #abetterplace is not just a marketing slogan, it’s a true commitment to live up to Avnet’s brand purpose statement: We help technology make the world a better place to live, work and play. The value proposition for #abetterplace is our fundamental belief that this is a simple yet powerful way to deliver our brand story in a way that energizes, engages and aligns Avnet brand enthusiasts. We’re insightful, effective, innovative and sustainable. #abetterplace is designed to inspire Avnet people in every corner of the earth to take action that will accelerate Avnet’s financial success and feed our culture as a high performing leader in a fast-moving, ever-changing technology marketplace.
