Conference Schedule-at-a-Glance

Prospect Development features four days of industry-leading education around the key pillars of prospect development — prospect research, relationship management, data analytics and campaigns — with plenty of networking time built in. The conference will include:

  • Three general sessions to bring us together to level up our collective focus, asking "big picture" questions of industry leaders and ourselves.
  • The top-notch leadership and professional development track to offer leadership, advocacy and intrapersonal communication skills development.
  • Dedicated networking time to connect with your colleagues, exhibitors and sponsors throughout the four days.
