KEYNOTES & PANELS

Explore today's areas of TRANSFORMATION with insightful solutions and perspectives from our featured keynotes and expert panels.

TRANSFORM
YOUR COMPANY


Our keynote and President/CEO Panel will share stories and experiences on leading change in the face of disruptive technologies. They each have a unique perspective on how to transform an organization, and the change process they went through to transform from an analog company to a digital company.

• What kind of impact has technology had on business - and what impact will it have over the next twenty years?
• How do you know when your industry is about to be disrupted?
• Can businesses transform themselves?
• What kind of leadership creates massive value?

These are examples of questions that are worth asking to understand how these leaders create long-term value in the face of disruptive change.
