With disruption driving change at light speed, two things are certain with "change": you no longer have the luxury of time and it is unforgiving.  In a study by IBM, over 5,000 C-Suite executives stated that their #1 fear for the future was the "DISRUPTION" of their industry or business model. Forbes reports that market disruption will drive 40% of Fortune 500 companies into bankruptcy in the next 10 years.  Any industry ignoring the wave of change headed our way will risk becoming irrelevant and eliminated.  Enter FUTURE 4.0.  In this very insightful and energetic session, Tom will unpack the key elements of FUTURE 4.0 including:

3 dynamic forces driving change at hyperspeed... It will only get faster

2020's economic boom... are they ready

The 8 year labor shortage

4 technologies that will change everything 

Why and where disruption takes place

How the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 are the solutions to the future
