APPI Conference

Keynote - Shawn Kanungo, Strategy in a World of Disruption

The business world has fundamentally changed forever. The growth and adoption of new technologies is at a dizzying pace. Customer and employee expectations have been pushed forward 10 years due to the pandemic. We are now looking for organizations to be fearless in a changing world. These drivers are forcing everyone to reimagine their entire organizations. How do we survive? How do we disrupt ourselves before someone else does? How do we deliver better experiences to our clients, customers, and teams? Today, we need to be bold, brave, and experimental.

In this awe-inspiring talk, Shawn Kanungo provides an optimistic roadmap for the future. He explores how we can take unexpected approaches to innovation to remain competitive and relevant.


Call for Proposals has been extended to May 17

This year's conference will explore how planning is evolving and will continue to evolve in the future and how to navigate the uncertainty.
