When The Innovation Group (TIG) formed the Emerging Leaders of Gaming (ELG) program in 2012, the goal was to provide promising young professionals an extra advantage for leadership opportunities and advancement in the highly competitive gaming, entertainment, leisure, and hospitality industries. Over the last seven years, ELG has experienced tremendous growth, diversifying across industry segments and reaching jurisdictions worldwide.
TIG has answered this growth by expanding ELG networking opportunities beyond its annual event at Global Gaming Expo, launching a webinar series and continuing to develop new content for its ELG newsletter. An especially exciting update this year was formalizing the ELG partnership with Global Gaming Business magazine around its marquee program to create a combined “Emerging Leader of Gaming 40 Under 40.” On the heels of this success, The Innovation Group is excited to begin planning additional updates for ELG in 2019 and we need your help!
It’s our intention to take ELG to the next level, with expanded mentoring and networking opportunities, and even a new look. To help inform our plans, we’re asking you to complete this brief survey to get your feedback about what you’ve liked about the program, what you’ve found helpful and, most of all, what else you’d like to see the program offer. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to respond so we can shape our future plans in a way that provides additional value and resources to you as you strive to achieve your professional goals.
In addition to empowering our clients to create successful destinations, The Innovation Group is dedicated to propelling the gaming and hospitality industry to even greater heights. Working in conjunction with several industry partners, we play an active role in shaping the strategies, technologies and leaders of tomorrow.
Emerging Leaders of Gaming™, a program designed to turn today’s young executives into tomorrow’s industry leaders, was formed by The Innovation Group as a means of giving young professionals that extra advantage in the already competitive gaming, entertainment, leisure, and hospitality industries.
The program launched in 2012, when nominees were selected and then granted access to the array of resources and connections that The Innovation Group has been building for more than 20 years. That year, we hosted our first Emerging Leaders networking event at Global Gaming Expo (G2E). The program has since provided ongoing networking and career advancement opportunities that bring the Emerging Leaders closer to future senior-level and C-suite management positions.
“Emerging Leaders programs and events shine an important light on the more than 200 unique careers that the gaming industry provides, supporting the development of professionals who seek to advance their careers in the industry. The Innovation Group’s support of this effort is invaluable to gaming professionals across the country.”
