LONDON, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan announces the launch of its global series of Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) events, focused on driving growth and inspiring innovation across industries by providing a powerful platform for collaboration and networking, in the French capital.

French industry leaders are set to gather at Hotel Lutetia in Paris on 17th October 2013 to fuel their creativity and gain inspiration through interactive networking, benchmarking of proven growth strategies, sharing of industry-specific best practices and access to some very insightful "BIG Picture" 360 Degree Visionary Perspectives.

Jan E Kristiansen, Partner & Global Head of Growth Consulting at Frost & Sullivan, comments: "In order to succeed in today's economic climate, each company must adopt a global outlook. Geographic expansion can help reduce costs, gain access to new markets and provide a robust pipeline to catalyse future growth. GIL France will provide key insights into strategy formulation, assessment of internal capabilities as well as external opportunities, development of business propositions with entry strategy options… all the way to successful implementation."

"In an ever changing-economy, business models need to be challenged and re-imagined," adds Sebastien Croizard, Director at Frost & Sullivan. "The time to get serious about growth is now. GIL France provides a unique forum to develop your analytical, strategic, visionary and innovative skills. You will take away the necessary tools and actionable strategies for critical decision-making."

The congress will explore growth opportunities and future trends in automotive & transportation, energy, environment as well as in the healthcare sector. One of the focus areas will cover Frost & Sullivan's research into the global Mega Trends anticipated to transform industries, markets and cultures and will discuss implications for French businesses.

The day will conclude with an Awards Banquet celebrating superlative accomplishments of over twenty best-in-class organisations representing a wide spectrum of hi-tech industries.

Frost & Sullivan's Global Community continues to be the industry's only resource that supports CEOs and their management teams in critical decision-making, offering tools that help industry leaders in achieving the three essential objectives of Growth, Innovation and Leadership. GIL 2013: France will provide CEOs and their growth teams an opportunity not just to attend GIL, but also to actually experience it.
