Integrity Summit Announces Powerful Lineup of Leaders Slated to Share Stories and Secrets of Integrity Driven Organizations
Integrity Summit, Americaâ€™s number one integrity empowerment event, is celebrating its 10th year in Phoenix. The summit, known for being inspirational, emotional and transformational, was developed as a springboard for leaders to advance organization-wide integrity practices for better workplaces and bigger successes. The Integrity Tigers, who are recognized for embodying strong morals, will speak on stage and share real-life stories, how-to secrets and great rewards that are accomplished with a strong character. This year, the Integrity Summit will be held both in-person and virtually on October 13, 2021, from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Chateau Lux (1175 E. Lone Cactus Dr.).
â€œThe most successful businesses and organizations are integrity-aware. They are leading in their metrics, have lower employee legal costs and premiums, and are attracting and retaining the best-of-the-best team members who want to come to work,â€ said Gregg Ostro, founder of Integrity Summit and GO Media Companies. â€œThe Integrity Tigers are exemplary leaders who will always stand up for what is right even when others do not. Their inspirational speeches will help inspire attendees to do the right thing in all business operations.â€
The powerhouse speaker line-up features Arizonaâ€™s top leaders in business education, non-profits and government. These individuals will be on stage for a fast-paced eight minute presentation to reveal how attendees can make â€œintegrityâ€ their brand and highlight the rewards that come with a moral business practice.

Debuting at Integrity Summit 10 are the Jerry Colangelo Integrity Tiger Awards presented by the Arizona Commerce Authority. These awards honor those who cultivate and inspire others to have integrity, have achieved great success with strong values and uplift the community. This year, Jerry Colangelo is introducing the Integrity Tiger Award Panel, so these individuals can convene to tackle audience questions.
â€œOur recognitions and awards are very emotional for me. Gregg and I began this mission in 2010 after I presented on integrity to over a thousand graduate business students. I was demoralized after I found out, with a show of hands in the audience, that 80% saw cheating in school and 90% saw it in their workplace,â€ said Jerry Colangelo, co-founder of the Integrity Summit and partner in JDM Partners, LLC. â€œBut now, after a decade of support from great sponsors and a team effort between Gregg, the Arizona Commerce Authority and myself, we are celebrating some great leaders and inspiring others.â€
