Engaging Sessions

This year's Client Summit was filled with engaging and relevant content. We heard from over a dozen speakers at world-class organizations. We learned where these companies are having success and how they are overcoming challenges. We were inspired by Stephen Shapiro on how to innovate in work and in daily life. We heard from our peers on panel sessions to get real-world advice to real-world challenges. A summary of topics discussed included, why manage contractors, auditing, integrating into the procurement process, learning from the contractor's perspective, tips and tricks with BROWZ OneView and much more. 

Peer Networking

The BROWZ Client Summit is designed to give you face-to-face time with your peers. This year was no exception. Throughout the sessions, ice breakers, meals, mountain activities, evening entertainment, and more, guests had the opportunity to meet and establish connections with their peers. If you attended the summit and want to connect with others at the event, join our private Client Summit LinkedIn group.
