Are You Future-Proofed?
Disruption, Innovation And The CCO
2018 Page Spring Seminar
April 5-6, 2018 Conrad New York

“When we started to think about the theme for this Spring Seminar, we heard from many of you that we really needed to shake things up and use this time to learn things that might be new to our thinking. Companies have been transformed or disrupted. Many have turned to design thinking to infuse their thinking about the future.

What I hope…is that we will step out of our comfort zone and listen for new ideas and new ways of thinking about the future. I hope everyone will come away with at least three new ideas they can apply to their way of working that turbocharges their function.” – Margery Kraus
