ACG-Orange County to Host “Next Practices in Growth – Moving Beyond the Status Quo”

November 12 event features some of Orange County’s highest performing companies, moderated by Executive Next Practices Institute CEO Scott Hamilton, industry expert on next-step growth strategies

TUSTIN, Calif., Nov. 4, 2015 – The Association for Corporate Growth Orange County Chapter (ACG-OC), in alliance with Executive Next Practices,today announced aC-Level corporate growth panel discussion to be held on Thursday, November 12 at 5:30pm at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach.Innovative and forward-thinking OC-based executives from Home Franchise Concepts and Budget Blinds, Mavenlink, Lineage Logistics and St. Joseph Hoag Health will be participating in this provocativediscussion.

The assembled panel will dissect best practices that enable ambitious companies to seemingly make their own rules while successfully targeting key markets.The discussion will aim to demystify how some firms are able to continuously improve and innovate internal processes to prepare for an unpredictable business future.

ACG-OC President Tom Hopper, representative for Aon Risk Solutions,believes this event is critical for companies enjoying success now, but are at risk of resting on their laurels. “Complacency becomes your mortal enemy,” said Hopper. “Successful companies need to continue to reengineer and innovate. Refreshing the way you work with your people now is essential to reach the next echelon of growth for companies that want to elevate their game.”

“More than 80% of all start-ups fail, yet the risk of failure for trying new initiatives within an existing business can be much lower given that all the ‘eggs are not in one basket,’” said Scott Hamilton, CEO of Executive Next Practices Institute and moderator for the panel.  “CEOs are concerned with being ‘Uberized’ in today’s light speed economy- simply staying with the status quo will lead to market irrelevance. Your next competitor is not even likely to come from your existing industry space  – think Red Digital cameras, for example.”

The ACG-OC corporate growth event, sponsored by Robert Half and Stradling,costs $50 to pre-registered members as well asto ENP members and $75 for non-members. For registration information, please register on-line at (credit card required).
