DALLAS—The Electronic Security Association (ESA) will hold its annual Leadership Summit in-person at the Omni Frisco, at the Dallas Cowboys Worldwide Headquarters, October 4-7.

This executive-level conference is for leaders who strive for more. Hundreds of executives from the electronic security and life safety industry — focused on growth — are set to gather this fall to network, learn keys to success from other industries, and develop their ability to motivate and engage employees. This is where the industry’s brightest minds take their teams to the next level. The event’s education and networking have been shown to ignite real growth.

“This event gets you around your peers — people making decisions and motivating employees each day in their companies,” said a past attendee. “Each year, I take advice back to our office to make improvements.”

Leaders will pre-schedule one-on-one meetings, share best practices, collaborate and get expert advice from pro's inside and outside of our industry.

Notable experts already announced to take the Summit’s Main Stage, include:

Dr. Ivan Joseph to talk about deflecting distractions and building team grit
