Next year's dates announced for The Great Conversation

Event to take place on March 3-4 in Seattle, Wash.


Renton – October 25, 2013 --- Aronson Security Group, the premier independent integrator of risk, resilience and security solutions announced their return to Seattle’s Bell Harbor International Conference Center on March 4 to host The Great Conversation. This year’s event will explore themes around leadership and change, the importance of a common operating picture as well as key technology platforms of security.   ASG will be bringing together industry thought leaders and the latest in technology from leading edge manufacturers as well as partnering with The Security Executive Council to create a top industry leadership event. 

“This is an event that focuses on bringing together security leadership from around the world to share ideas and create solutions to common security challenges,” explains Phil Aronson, CEO of Aronson Security Group. “Every year we are reminded by our attendees how valuable this event is to their programs and people. Taking part in these great conversations allows us all to direct and create positive change in the industry.”

On Monday, March 3, the Security Executive Council will be providing Phase II of their Next Generation Security Leader™ (NGSL) Program. This program is part of a special bundled package exclusively offered at The Great Conversation 2014 and is designed specifically for security managers and executives that want to take their program to the next level.

The Security Executive Council is the Thought Leadership Partner for The Great Conversation contributing their value through organizing, leveraging and syndicating knowledge from many of the security industry’s knowledge leaders and practitioners.  Participants in The Great Conversation will also be able to network with other security executives, integrators, practitioners, thought leaders and leading technology vendors.

“The Great Conversation is where theory and practice converge,” said Francis D’Addario, Emeritus Faculty with the Security Executive Council.    ”The attendance was overwhelming last year for our NGSL Program and we are pleased to once again offer this exclusive bundled package of our first release of Phase II of the NGSL Program.  The Great Conversation two-day program allows us to bring together some of the best minds in the industry to speak with and directly answer the questions that need to be answered.”

The key issues and industry trends that will be discussed in the NGSL are aligned with industry thought leaders in The Great Conversation & Technology Showcase on March 4. Anyone attending the NGSL gets an admission to both events. Separate one-day registration will be available as well.
