Global Leaders Gather at Strategy@Work 2019 to Discuss Business Transformation and Shaping Organizations of the Future

The exclusive event presents the latest best practices for transforming businesses and unlocking untapped opportunities

NEW YORK-Wednesday 23 October 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The world is changing at lightning speed, and that calls for a new era of strategy and business transformation. To help businesses effectively meet this growing need, Brightline™, a Project Management Institute (PMI) initiative, will host its second-annual Strategy@Work conference at The Pierre Hotel on October 24, 2019. The invite-only event brings together world-class executives from different industries to shed light on how to best institute organizational change and turn innovation – and ideas into reality.

Attendees will enjoy presentations on transformation from three global luminaries: Jim McNerney, the former CEO and Chairman of The Boeing Company; Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a two-time Finance Minister of Nigeria and the former Managing Director of The World Bank; and Rick Goings, Chairman Emeritus at Tupperware Brands.

The event program features thought-provoking panels and sessions with strategy and transformation experts such as best-selling author and Stanford University Consulting Professor Dr. Behnam Tabrizi; Head of TED Chris Anderson; Salesforce Global Customer Growth and Innovation Evangelist Tiffani Bova; Columbia Business School Professor and best-selling author Rita McGrath; and more. The sessions will emphasize how to:

    Ensure sustained investment in technologies and talent development
    Engage talent pools and motivate employees
    Create a sense of urgency for change and bring everyone together to transform their businesses and themselves
    Identify key roadblocks to cultivating a collaborative culture.

Also, during the event, Brightline is launching its new framework, Brightline Transformation Compass, to empower employees and leaders to conduct and implement transformation. Brightline Transformation Compass incorporates the best research and latest views from thought-leaders, including Strategy@Work presenter Dr. Tabrizi. The framework will be available at after the conference.
