KEYNOTE TALK : SUMMITING CHANGE - FROM TECH TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP

Any transformation, particularly a strategic one, is a big challenge. Often, it's not clear at the offset as to how it's going to be fully accomplished. The idea of not backing down from unknown challenges is what lies at the heart of any transformation - be it personal or in business. This inspirational talk by Rick Crandall, a seasoned technology veteran who chose to take a road less travelled, will explore what it takes for leaders to break away from their comfort zone, find the right resources and break down the problem, in a way that is both pragmatic and keeps the passion alive.

KEYNOTE PANEL : GAME CHANGER - BUILDING GLOBAL CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE AS A KEY DIFFERENTIATOR TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE

'It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive, but those who can best manage change.' This quote of Darwin's has become a mantra in today's disruptive global industry. Companies are grappling with innovating faster and at a rapid scale. As the demand for newer competencies and aptitudes keeps rising, companies need to revisit their talent management playbook to navigate today's 'New Skills Economy', as failing to do so will expose organizations to the risk of falling behind competitors and eventually becoming irrelevant to their customers. Global Centers of Excellence are proving themselves as the incubators of talent, technology and innovation.

Are CoEs your cup of tea? How do you set up CoEs and what are the key levers for success? How do you optimize your existing CoE for better value and scale? These burning questions and much more will be discussed in this power-packed panel.
