The Summit The Summit Jan 22nd 2015

Location/Venue: Pinnacle Hills - Gatheria

The Summit began in September 2001 out of Dr. Ronnie Floyd’s desire to dramatically impact the business culture of Northwest Arkansas. Dr. Floyd, the Senior Pastor of Cross Church, desired to provide a weekly luncheon that would motivate, inspire and challenge business professionals to make the climb in the business world. His heart for the area coupled with his passion for leadership led him to teach principles that could literally change your future over lunch.

Since its inception, The Summit has become a premier place for connection, equipping and fellowship. Hundreds of business leaders from across our region come weekly to be equipped to make the climb in the business world. Today, the focus and format is the same however Dr. Floyd does not speak every week like he did in early years. Instead he invites significant leaders from around the country to share insights that could transform your career.
