Event Details | Conference
The 2019 IHAF Leadership Summit, hosted at McDonald's new corporate headquarters, focuses on what in-house agency leaders are doing to take their organizations to the next level—turning trials into triumphs.
This executive-level event offers opportunities to network and learn from corporate and creative pace setters, sharing proven strategies for organizational and operational success. Details including the event agenda, featured speakers and session descriptions will be posted in the coming months.
Registered attendees will also be invited to a special networking reception the night before the Summit. This is an added opportunity to mix and mingle with other corporate leaders over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. (Reception is open to in-house agencies only.)

“To have a one-day conference where every session is relatable, educational and entertaining is a huge win in my book. I was able to network with colleagues in the same industry—sharing ideas, best practices and in-house agency solutions. The IHAF Leadership Summit was a truly valuable event with so many interesting topics, especially the state-of-the-industry report, which shared how far in-house agencies have come. I would sign up to attend again in a heartbeat!”
—Stacey Hinckley, Executive Programs Manager at Globoforce
“The Leadership Summit pulls back the curtain on the in-house agency model. Our challenges as creative teams inside our organizations are universal. The value we bring to our brands is now more important than ever. IHAF continues to inspire and provide valuable insider knowledge to lead our teams into the next decade.”
—Judy Alberts, Creative Director at AbbVie
“A true spirit of sharing, collaboration and friendship seems to pervade IHAF compared to many other industry groups in which I participate. People seem to go out of their way to be helpful and add value to the concerns we all share. Plus, the thoroughness of information compiled and shared by IHAF is second-to-none. Not just the minimum is done to get by, but an extra-generous helping of white papers and online content comes our way. Like the Leadership Summit, the dividends of being a member are rolling in! Thanks, IHAF.”
—Steve Haber, formerly VP, Global Marketing Services at Lionbridge
