Let's be honest: As much as we have big aspirations for innovation and the breakthroughs IT can deliver, we still face massive challenges. One financial setback or change in leadership can upend even the most carefully planned initiatives. But the best leaders know how to overcome these hurdles and keep their organizations focused on the big, potentially game-changing initiatives. 

In this session, Michael Salas of Suez North America, and Jack Keck of Barclays will speak with emerging tech advisor and author Brian Watson about their key priorities--and the sometimes harsh realities--of driving not only IT-led innovation initiatives, but the bigger picture of creating a truly holistic culture of innovation at their companies. 
After such an invigorating day of problem solving, connections and non-stop content, let’s “wine” down with some beverages. This is your chance to exchange ideas and really get to know those you briefly met or haven’t had the chance to! 

Join us in the networking pavilion for the reception you have stayed all day for.
