Your Future Is Safe With Change

Co-Founder of Courageous, Author of "Return On Courage"

Guest Speaker

The landscape of business today is cloudy as many of us find ourselves living in a static loop that’s causing a clarity epidemic of epic proportions. Our work forces remain handcuffed – starved for time and unable to do what needs to be done to advance our careers and corporations forward. What if we could flip the script from preservation mode to liberation mode? What if instead of being time starved you could gain the necessary clarity to warp forward. 

Join this session with author and courage expert Ryan Berman as he discusses:

  • Why we desperately need to be courageous

  • How each of us can learn to be more courageous

  • How we can unleash courage in our organizations now, while unveiling ‘the how”

Ten years’ worth of digitization occurred in less than a year as companies realized the pressing need to automate their operations to stay relevant and competitive.

  • Driving operational efficiencies while delivering excellent customer service

  •  Manage IT resources to optimize performance and cost, increase observability, and manage incidents
