The IHAF Leadership Summit has been lauded as the premier networking and learning opportunity for in-house agency leaders. This executive-level event is hosted every two years and offers opportunities to network and learn from corporate and creative pace setters, sharing proven strategies for organizational and operational success. Focusing on what in-house agency leaders are doing to take their organizations to the next level, this full-day event includes keynote sessions, networking and a site tour. 

Our 2021 event was our first IHAF Women's Leadership Summit, which featured influential women from Anheuser-Busch InBev, Cisco Systems, Inc., Hilton, International Monetary Fund, Mary Kay Inc. and RP3 Agency. Video recordings of presentations are available for IHAF members to enjoy here
