The 2013 Senior Executive Summit (SES) took place March 10-14 at the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, CA. During this program, the highest-ranking women in cable honed their leadership skills and learned advanced techniques for furthering innovation within a company; reviewed findings in neuroscience and the connection to exemplary leadership; and discussed the important role conflict can play in team relationships.
In addition to the esteemed Stanford faculty, Padmasree Warrior, Chief Technology & Strategy Officer of Cisco Systems, joined the lineup of speakers and instructors, inspiring program attendees with her very personal insights into strategy, technology and leadership.

Here's what some of this year's attendees had to say about the re-launched program:
"Combining outstanding Stanford Business School faculty, highly relevant content, cutting edge research and the talent of 34 executive women in the cable industry made for an extremely productive week. I would do it again in a heartbeat." - Amy Tykeson, President & CEO, Bend Broadband
"The faculty and staff of the Stanford Business School's Executive Education program put together a multi-day curriculum that successfully leveraged the innovation DNA of the Valley and reinforced best practices for innovative leadership. I found it helpful and productive to share many of the topics and research findings with my team and colleagues." - Joan Gillman, President, Time Warner Cable Media/EVP, Time Warner Cable
"The level of the participants and the curriculum was unmatched. Being able to share the program's inspiring information with my classmates was truly priceless." - Ellen Kroner, EVP, Corporate Communications & Marketing, AMC Networks
"WICT's Senior Executive Summit exceeded my expectations on a daily basis, providing both a valuable learning experience and rare chance to build relationships with colleagues across the industry. I would highly recommend this one-of-a-kind experience to other cable executives." - Gemma Toner, SVP, Broadband Product Management, Cablevision
"The program far exceeded my expectations, and I found it immensely rewarding. The curriculum was on point and the interaction between the faculty and participants was as informative as the content." - Cynthia Gibson, EVP, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary, Scripps Networks Interactive
