ENGINES OF CHANGE:
DISRUPTION – INNOVATION – JOB CREATION
February 5, 2015 7:30AM-1:00PM
Silver Legacy Resort and Casino, Grand Exhibition Hall
Innovation. It’s the lifeblood of our global economy and a strategic priority for virtually every CEO around the world. In many ways, we’ve gone beyond the unpredictable. We live in an age of the unthinkable.
DIRECTIONS is about bringing together disruptive innovators and thought leaders to share their insights on the industries, trends and business concepts that offer amazing potential to lead our community and state through this vital economic recovery.
The marketplace is changing. Are you? Whether in manufacturing, retailing or service related industries, learning how to capitalize on the phenomenon of disruptive innovation will make sure you don’t get pushed aside. Thinking outside of the box often requires linking the ideas in your area of knowledge with those of others who play in different boxes, who are outside your sphere. With over 700 attendees, DIRECTIONS is the largest business event in the area bringing together companies, non-profits and community leaders from across the region.
DIRECTIONS is a ground-breaking, game changing, idea networking event that offers the opportunity to stretch your thinking and boost your creative capacity. Smart companies reap what they sow. If your organization isn’t digging deep enough on a regular basis to recognize the wealth of revenue-producing opportunities that may be hiding just below the strategic surface, you could be short-changing your stakeholders – and your company’s future – out of a powerful harvest that can make all the difference to your bottom line.
Register today if you want to ignite higher levels of engagement and productivity.
