Churchill Club presents the 7th Annual CHURCHILLS on September 14, 2017—a magical event that inspires us to aim higher and do more to advance innovation, leadership, collaboration, and social benefit.
Our esteemed speakers are nominated and voted to the top for their contributions to four areas of excellence by the Churchill Club Academy, a group of over 700 innovation community members made up of industry leaders and professionals, entrepreneurs, investors, students, faculty, and members of the press.
Honorable speakers for each distinction appear in the spirit of “giving back”—by sharing their perspectives and insights about what is needed to innovate, lead, collaborate, and contribute to the greater good.
