PALM SPRINGS, Calif.Nov. 14, 2017

Cien co-founder and business builder Margot Carter will present at EY’s annual Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs, California on Friday, November 17, as part of a session entitled “What’s next for boards,” where she and other seasoned directors will cover the way corporate boards identify,  prioritize and address disruptive market forces.

EY Strategic Growth Forum is an annual invitation-only conference that brings together more than 2,000 of the nation’s top CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors to discuss strategies for accelerating and sustaining growth. This year’s theme is “How do you get to next before next gets to you?”

The event also celebrates the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Program, which recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

Since 1986, EY has celebrated entrepreneurial excellence by honoring those whose ingenuity, spirit of innovation, and discipline have propelled their companies’ success, invigorated their industries, and benefited their communities. These men and women have created the products, services and jobs that help our economy and communities grow, while also encouraging others to follow their lead. In 2017, the 261 regional winners employed more than 230,000 people and had job growth of 20 percent. They also generated revenue of more than $52 billion this year, with revenue growth increasing more than 33 percent.

Notable speakers at the EY Strategic Growth Forum include Robert F. Smith, Founder and CEO of Vista Equity Partners; Robert K. Kraft, Founder, Chairman and CEO of The Kraft Group; and 15-time NBA All Star Player, Shaquille O’Neal.
