NCS Madison provides professional learning programs that are uniquely structured. Our model and services focus on eliciting open discussions on industry-specific trends and issues to senior IT executives and leadership teams.

We have a commitment to quality. At NCS Madison, there is always a strong dedication to the environment that our services create, as well as the resulting experiences of everyone involved.
Why We Are Unique
Our Discussion Group Format.
As opposed to a traditional conference setting with a speaker/audience format, our services feature a “discussion group” environment that supports lively participation. In turn, this leads to more collaborative and effective sharing of perspectives between people who are currently at multiple stages of implementation.
With extensive practice in market research and content development, our team also helps tailor topics of discussion to be timely and relevant. Our focused events ultimately provide valuable information, new ideas and practical solutions for all of our attendees.
Senior executives who attend our events all agree that the chance to sit down with their peer group to discuss, debate, and share everyday business experiences is invaluable while at the same time allowing them to come up with group solutions for some of today’s biggest business challenges.
Approximately 2-3 weeks prior to each event, there is a selection process that allows you to prioritize both relevant discussion groups and sponsors. These sponsor engagements are not a requirement, however are mutually selected and agreed by both parties to ensure collective interest and time is not wasted.
Many CIOs have expressed they are pleasantly surprised at the lack of sales pressure and overall value of the business meetings that occur. Ultimately, it’s a great way to knockout some of your evaluation work in a Day that normally would take months. While there is no obligation to engage in sponsor meetings, most CIOs sit down with 2-3 sponsors throughout the day based on current or planned initiatives with the intention of learning and potentially solving crucial challenges they are facing.
What We Offer
