Join The Climb: What To Expect At Growth Summit 2015

Brightstar’s 2015 Growth Summit is almost here! We are inviting our owners, executives, and buyers from our top companies and clients in the retail and wireless industries to take part in our two-day summit experience.

Our goal is to present insights into the existing opportunities that can take our clients’ businesses to the next level, and have a lot of fun at the same time! Upon leaving the event, participants will have a new game plan and techniques that can be put into practice immediately to elevate their business. Here’s an overview of some of the great sessions and activities we’ll be offering this year:

Breakout Sessions
We’re offering four breakout sessions that will take place on the first full day of Growth Summit. The breakout sessions cover a wide range of topics and provide valuable advice that can be quickly implemented to improve your business. Whether your company wants to learn best practices for ordering inventory around new phone launches, needs new strategies for selling premium products, or just is looking for new ways to increase revenue, our breakout sessions will have you covered.


Industry Expert Panel
Brightstar has brought together experts from a variety of roles in the wireless industry for an Industry Expert Panel to discuss ways to achieve best-in-class status in this fast-paced industry. They are coming prepared to discuss the evolving landscape of the wireless industry, best practices in customer service, and opportunities they foresee coming in the next five to ten years. Their experiences range from owning and running retail stores to directing global sales and building partner eco-systems.

Keynote Speaker
Our Keynote Speaker, Luis Benitez, has led expeditions and was Director of Operations USA for Adventure Consultants (AC), a highly respected New Zealand-based expedition firm with a long and storied history of leading trips on Mt. Everest. Benitez also manages and leads an annual critical thinking/leadership development seminar in Ecuador and Chile for the Wharton School of Business, and volunteers his time as a guide for the non-profit; Trekking for Kids.

He currently champions Talent Management and Leadership Development for Vail and Beaver Creek mountains with Vail Resorts and is also a seated town Councilman in Eagle, Colorado.

After a day full of breakout sessions, vendor meetings, and networking opportunities on Tuesday, we’ll unwind with some local music, complimentary drinks, snacks and dancing. We’ll shuttle over to Brickway Brewery & Distillery, Omaha’s first distillery since Prohibition and only combination brewery/distillery, where their mission is to make craft beer and spirits fun, approachable and honest.

Wednesday night we will enjoy complimentary drinks and a plated dinner during our Awards Ceremony before finishing the event with a Pub Crawl in downtown Omaha. We’ll tour some of Omaha’s finest bars, pubs and restaurants via the Omaha Patio Ride and Magnolia Shuttle. We’ll visit select vendors at their respective bars, enjoy drink specials and get some more time to network with professionals in the industry before the event ends.
