ELFA to Host Quarterly Innovation Roundtables in 2023

In recognition of the critical importance of innovation in today’s rapidly shifting business environment, the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association will present four Innovation Roundtables in 2023. These virtual events will allow equipment finance professionals to find out what is on the minds of their peers, share ideas and discover new approaches for tackling their innovation challenges.

“In our busy lives, there is a danger of getting stuck in the day-to-day and not connecting with new ideas and possibilities for the future,” Deborah Reuben, CEO and founder of TomorrowZone, chair of the ELFA’s Innovation Advisory Council and facilitator of the roundtables, said. “Don’t risk being left behind! Join our 2023 Innovation Roundtables to connect with your colleagues and gain fresh insights on how to be future-ready.”

The 2023 roundtables will be held on Feb. 16, May 18, Aug. 10 and Nov. 16. Members of the ELFA’s Innovation Advisory Council will select the topics and serve as guest speakers and discussion leaders at each roundtable. The format for the roundtables will combine large and small group guided discussions and facilitated peer-to-peer idea exchanges, allowing attendees to dive into hot innovation topics and what they mean for equipment finance.
