AGENDA

Day 1 - An inside look at the disruptors

In todays environment all companies, Fortune 250 or not, should be figuring out how to become the kind of company that disrupts the market. Disruptors have learned how to grow without introducing bureaucracy, management levels and strict processes that kills both innovation and employee spirit. Today will be an inspiration, not only in how the giants operate but it will also shift your perspective on what to look for as you think about launching a fulfilling career.
