Speakers

This conference brings together the region’s most accomplished leaders to drive individual and corporate performance. All speakers are hand-selected by the Governing Body leadership team to ensure the content is timely and relevant. This nomination process results in valuable engagement with speakers who deliver profound and insightful presentations and moderate interactive peer-to-peer boardroom sessions in a media-free, private environment.

Evanta summits are built “by CDOs, for CDOs” to elevate leadership, strengthen peer relationships in the region, and facilitate sharing of game-changing content between those on the frontlines of executive leadership.
