November 2015 saw the 25th Executive Development Program (EDP) take place in beautiful Lake Tahoe. 56 gaming executives from across the globe experienced the intensive ten-day program taught by world renowned industry leaders and academics.

This year’s faculty included the Oakland A’s General Manager (and character in Moneyball) David Forst, American Gaming Association CEO Geoff Freeman, two-time Las Vegas Mayor Jan Jones, technology expert and Bally executive Bruce Rowe, longtime “voice of MGM” (and formerly Mirage) Alan Feldman, world-famous architect Paul Steelman, IGI Gaming Operations Professor Anthony Lucas, and many others.

What a tremendous opportunity to bring gaming executives from all corners of the globe together for an intense, highly educational and inspiring 9 days. I have made friends and contacts for life, and reaffirmed that the gaming industry is the BEST industry to work in.
