This year’s event focused on the theme of Innovation and Leadership in Healthcare and brought together more than 400 CEOs and business, government, and non-profit executives from companies and organizations statewide.
Attendees welcomed North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, and Glaxo Smith Klein President Jack Bailey as featured keynote speakers, plus more than 15 additional speakers throughout the two-day program, including the following Title Sponsor keynotes:
A charitable opportunity was included as part of the Forum, with all proceeds from the live auction being donated to Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina, which works to empower children battling life-threatening conditions, and Teen Cancer America, an organization that provides specialized facilities for teens with cancer. Total proceeds from the event will be divided between the two organizations in support of their respective missions. As corporate supporters of Teen Cancer America, The Special Event Company donated a Paul Reed Smith S2 Standard 22 guitar signed by Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, Eddie Vedder and Joan Jett as a unique live auction item, which sold for $9,000.
