A message to the Alliance from...

There's no denying that this year's IGA Global Rally on Innovation was one of the most successful events we've had in recent IGA history. How do we know? Well, for one thing, we have some glowing survey results to prove it. For another, people just can't seem to stop talking about it! In fact, we've had so many requests for a video of Rally highlights that we've put one together, and we're debuting it here today!

So, just in time to start thinking about making plans for our 2015 Global Rally, I present to you the best parts from your 2014 Global Rally. This video is packed full of highlights from the IGA Rally's culture of innovation, so whether you were there and part of the action, or experiencing it for the first time, you're sure to find a useful takeaway when you watch this Rally video.

Watching this video reminds us that we have a lot of work ahead of us to make an even better program for Orlando in 2015, but I'm pleased to say that we're well on our way. Already we've booked one exceptional keynote speaker in Captain Sully Sullenberger, the airline pilot who in 2009 successfully landed a disabled US Airways flight in the Hudson River with no loss of life. A consummate leader, Sully will share timeless management principles—including his credo of "leadership by personal example"—and the lessons from his life which prepared him to handle the unprecedented crisis presented by the "Miracle on the Hudson."

And Sully is only the beginning. We have more exciting, dynamic speakers in the works, and we will be sharing them with you as soon as we possibly can. What I can promise you is that we will make sure that 2015 is even better than the year before, so go ahead and mark your calendar to join us in Orlando!
