Disruption and reinvention - how leading industries are changing
Many industries are experiencing disruption in the form of new technologies, non-traditional competitors and consolidation. Depending on where you sit, disruption can be a threat, an opportunity or both. While sea change in any industry can become a threat to established players, it can also sharpen competition and push positive transformation. In this annual forum we’ll hear from a leading economist and industry leaders on the cutting edge of change and learn how they see the future and are driving transformation in their organizations.
Keynote Speaker: Jeffrey C. Fuhrer, Executive Vice President & Senior Policy Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
Leaders from different industries will discuss the pace of change, the future outlook, and share how they have responded to disruption and driven innovation in their organizations.
