CHICAGO — Gail Becker, the founder and CEO of the high-growth food company Caulipower, will be among the headliners at PRovoke: North America, which takes place in Chicago at the Langham Hotel next month.

PRovoke North America, formerly the Innovation Summit North America, returns to Chicago on February 12 with a stellar lineup of speakers to discuss innovation and change in the consumer, healthcare and technology sectors. In this fireside chat, Becker will talk about her journey from a PR executive to CEO of one of the fastest-growing, innovative food companies. In just two years, Caulipower has disrupted one of the grocery’s most stagnant categories — frozen pizzas. Under Becker's leadership, Caulipower is now available in over 25,000 stores and has garnered more than $100m in revenue.

Becker will address how communications can provide tangible benefits to a high-growth, innovative brand — and how the industry needs to evolve to better serve a new generation of companies. Before founding Caulipower, Becker held several executive roles in communications, including at Edelman where she spent more than 15 years.

Following the half-day Summit, PRovoke Media will host a series of invitation-only salons to discuss critical issues facing the industry. For more information on participating in those, contact us. That evening, we will host the 2020 Innovation SABRE Awards North America gala. In addition to recognizing the winners from this year's Innovation SABRE Awards shortlist, Becker will be recognized for an individual achievement award.

Tickets for both events are available here and rooms can be booked at the Langham Hotel here. Sponsors for the event include ICF Next, W2O Group, Zeno, PAN Communications, and The Bulleit Group.
