Peer-to-Peer Roundtable Luncheon

Roundtables give attendees an opportunity to learn from their peers by sharing expertise and discussing practical approaches to success in their field—all while developing stronger networks. Table leads will be on hand to spark conversation. The table topics can be found on page 27 of the Advantage Forum 2018 brochure. You will have the opportunity to sign-up for your preferred table topic when you register online for the conference.

Here's what a few of our past attendees had to say about the value of attending the Forum:

I attended my first Forum in Dallas in 1996. At the time, I couldn't fully appreciate how much I would take away from the event through learning and networking with my peers. Now, nineteen years later, I still look forward to attending the Forum, confident that I will bring back ideas that will enrich and extend my organization's use of (CGI) Advantage. I will make contacts I can call upon long after the event ends.

Great opportunity to meet current users as well as other new users.

Excellent job fostering partnerships between clients.

Forum 2018 keynote speaker Phil Jansen

Phil Hansen

Referred to by his fans as "the Artist for the People", Phil Hansen is an internationally recognized multimedia artist, speaker, author and innovator at the forefront of bringing art to a wider audience. Crashing irreverently through conventional boundaries, Phil works at the intersection of traditional art, electronic media, offbeat materials, and interactive experiences. He is most widely known for his meta-art, videos that document the creation process (sometimes even through destruction), showing millions that art is action, not just result.
