Growth Thought Leaders Converge to Advance Best Practices in Growth, Innovation and Leadership at GIL 2011: Silicon Valley

Frost & Sullivan's Annual Congress Unites Key Partners to Support Senior Executives and Their Companies in Their Quest to Explore Visionary Innovation

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 9, 2011) - Frost & Sullivan's exclusive Strategic Partnership Consortium (SPC) provides opportune networking connections between its members, who represent world-class solutions that enable companies to accelerate growth, inspire innovation and strengthen their leadership position in today's marketplace. This global alliance is a unique, one of-a-kind collaborative approach at leveraging products, services and solutions, bridging a collection of proven tools, strategies and ideas which support above average growth for today's businesses.

The SPC and Frost & Sullivan Institute, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to leveraging innovation as a resource to address global challenges, are two contributing sources of thought leadership fueling this year's Growth, Innovation and Leadership Congress, GIL 2011: Silicon Valley, taking place at the Fairmont in San Jose, California on Sept. 11 to 14, 2011.

"GIL 2011: Silicon Valley, our annual North America GIL congress, supports executives irrespective of industry with all of the necessary insights and perspectives which enable them to implement their growth strategies at best practice levels," said Frost & Sullivan Vice President of Growth, Innovation and Leadership Brian Denker. "SPC member organizations represent best-in-class thought leadership, providing products, services or solutions which accelerate growth that are also within the top 10 percent of their market as a result of utilizing their own abilities in-house."

SPC members showcase excellence in a specific niche area tied to growth acceleration with proven results. The ideas and perspectives shared and inspired during GIL 2011: Silicon Valley, as well as within the GIL Global Community alike, are largely driven through innovation from SPC member organizations like PR Newswire, Underwriters Laboratories (UL), BrightTALK, Bulldog Solutions, Eloqua, GlobalSpec, HCL, Lenos Software, LivePerson, salesElement, and SABIC Innovative Plastics. With such diverse market representation, attendees will benefit from being able to "look outside the box" of traditional solutions and explore a more innovative approach to achieving their growth objectives.

"SPC partners will be onsite to share their thoughts and world-class strategies to help CEOs and their management teams find answers to their toughest questions and their current growth challenges," said Frost & Sullivan Director of Global Strategic Partnerships Joe Krumpfer. "By leveraging this elite group of experts, GIL Community members can achieve best practice levels in growth, innovation and leadership."

Strategic Non-Profit Partners within the consortium include the Computer History Museum, Clean Technology and Sustainable Industries Organization, Greenstar, Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP), SETI Institute, Association of International Product Marketing Management (AIPMM), Appropedia, Business Marketing Association (BMA), and Carbon War Room.
