SC&H Group hosted nearly 300 professionals Nov. 4 for the inaugural “AdvantEdge: Leading on The Edge” innovation summit.

Notable thought leaders on the front lines of innovative practices, in both technology and culture, shared best practices and first-hand experiences about “leading on the edge” in a marketplace that is changing at warp speed.

AdvantEdge was born out of SC&H Group’s internal innovation summit. This year, after hearing positive feedback from employees, the firm was inspired to open it up to the community, bringing companies together to learn about the subject versus tackling it alone.

Speakers and topics at AdvantEdge included Nicole Casanova, CEO of Casanova Ventures and Connection Catalyst, on “Connection Builds Innovation,” Yet Analytics founder and CEO Shelly Blake-Plock discussing the “AI & Analytics Outlook 2020 and Beyond,” Pritpal Kalsi, SC&H Group’s Business Performance Management director and CEO-elect, offering “The Path to Financial Transformation,” Joe Mechlinski, founder and CEO of SHIFT and bestselling author of “SHIFT the Work,” teaching “How to Create a Culture of Innovation” and Dr. Dan Durand, chief innovation officer of LifeBridge Health discussing “Innovating from the Inside Out.”

Partners in the event included LifeBridge Health, Merritt Companies, M&T Bank and Venable.
