Guided by the experienced innovation practitioners of FUTURELEADERNOW this Fieldtrip provides a unique opportunity for participants to experience firsthand organizations who take the “Superminds” theme to fruition – transforming their organizations and leading them into the future by blending technology and people through their leadership, organization, culture, and strategy.

What companies will we visit?

We’ll kick off our day at S&P Global in the heart of the financial district. Through its 150+ years in existence, S&P Global has continued to push the envelope on how to deliver “essential intelligence” to its clients, partners and the world. Understanding the intersection of people and technology to deliver that purpose is what drives their current strategy. While visiting S&P we’ll talk to the leaders of that future – their technology leaders who are forging their “essential tech” initiatives, and their people leaders, who are dialing in on what people need in order to deliver their value proposition to the markets.


From there, we’ll travel to the Empire State Building to visit LinkedIn’s New York Headquarters. We’ll visit with the world’s largest professional network that connects approximately 650 million users in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. We’ll learn how LinkedIn is creating a digital map of the global economy to connect talent with opportunity at a massive scale. They strongly believe that their culture is their foundation and they’ll give us insight on why they refer to their employees as “the real culture owners”. This philosophy has been rewarded with several recent accolades including: World’s Most Ethical Companies 2019, Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2019, and Corporate Goodness Award 2019.


We will end the day with a discussion and summary of our learnings, translating them into insights that you can bring back to your own organizations. New connections will be made, and you will walk away energized and inspired!

Attendee Testimonials:


“In our daily battles at work, we are forced to focus on urgent, short term matters. This Fieldtrip let’s us take time to instead focus on the important, long-term matters. It provokes thought about how to be proactive rather than reactive. The time invested here can renew your mind and energy about what it means to build the right kind of team and culture.”
