How to Inspire and Cultivate a Transformation Culture
Join former CIO & popular author Chris Laping for this two-part strategy session
Unfortunately, we often hear stories and jokes that suggest IT is not seen as an equal to “the business.” The reality: IT has an opportunity to drive game-changing outcomes that inspire “crazy loyalty” in the communities they serve—which can result in a powerful brand for themselves. In this interactive conversational session, former CIO and best-selling author of People Before Things, Chris Laping, will discuss the fundamental mind shift that’s required for leaders today to inspire and cultivate a culture of transformation.
