The pace of change is faster today than it’s ever been before, and it’s as slow as it will ever be again. This creates opportunity for startups, and enormous threats for large companies. In fact, 52% of the S&P 500 has disappeared over the past 15 years, and all projections suggest that disruption will only be faster going forward.

Companies have to shift the way they work so they can optimize for speed to enable customer centricity, innovation, and efficiency. This means a different, more streamlined way of going from strategy to execution and connecting into a new workforce comprised of employees and the broader globe of talent.

Join Pat Petitti, CEO of Catalant, to learn more about how the biggest companies in the world are changing the way they work.

Registration is now open! We'll see you Friday, October 11.
