How inventive thinking can drive success in turbulent times

Sept. 2 11am PT
Josh Linkner
Keynote Speaker

The most successful companies, brands, and individuals make reinvention part of their business strategies. Transformation demands an ongoing process of discovery and imagination, and The Road to Reinvention lays out a systematic approach for continually challenging and reinventing yourself and your business.

Five-time tech entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author Josh Linkner delivers a systematic approach for accelerating transformation and driving productive reinvention.

Change is inevitable. You need to decide: Will you drive that change, or be driven away by it? Will you disrupt or be disrupted? By choosing to deliberately re-imagine your own status quo, you can secure a strong future for both your company and career.
