3rd Annual Leadership Summit
In January 2017 NOVA Corporation concluded our 3rd Annual Leadership Summit in Odenton, MD, just outside of Ft. Meade, MD. This was our first two day event, and was attended by 28 representatives from our leadership representing NOVA and all sister companies, such as DDC-ITS, DDC-CS, and our shared services functional areas of Accounting and our IT division. Our Leadership Summit set the tone for our business strategy for the upcoming year, discussed the theme Leadership Matters, and briefed each program in detail. Every attendee had a chance to speak and present to the group, and we got to hear from everyone.
Also in attendance were our two keynote speakers. On the first day, COL Wendy Rivers, Commanding Officer, US ARMY, Information Systems & Engineering Command (ISEC) who joined us, along with 18 VIPs, in Odenton from Ft. Huachuca, AZ. COL Rivers gave an impassioned and powerful keynote speech and imparted the lessons she has learned while in command of US Army components engaged in battle.
On the 2nd day our keynote speaker was bestselling author, Joe Folkman, PHD, author of the Extraordinary Leader, the Inspiring Leader, the Extraordinary Coach, and many more widely popular published works. Joe Folkman teleconferenced into the Summit from his home in Orem, UT, and gave us copies of his latest book, Leadership Speed, and talked about the importance of getting things done quickly AND accurately
Overall, it was a great event, and we plan on doing it again next year.
