About Thoughtworks Live

 

Thoughtworks Live is an event series designed especially for senior executives at the intersection of business and technology. Our sessions are carefully curated to explore success strategies for the future and discuss how to take advantage of the infinite possibilities created by the exponential advancements in technology.

 

On October 11, 2022, Thoughtworks Live returned to its in-person morning conference format. A fantastic lineup of expert speakers from a wide range of backgrounds and industries explored how organizations are responding to wave after wave of disruption by building sustainable strategies for long-term growth.

Latest event: How sustainable organizations sidestep disruption

 

Over the last few years, organizations around the world have navigated some of the most volatile market and operating conditions ever seen. And looking ahead, disruption appears to be far from over.

 

With that in mind, it seemed only fitting that this year’s event should explore what it takes to build and execute sustainable strategies that can help organizations turn disruptive challenges into valuable opportunities.

 

In the latest edition of Live, Thoughtworkers, partners and industry experts came together to discuss how technology can help organizations adapt and grow as they face the next waves of global disruption, and evolve into sustainable organizations.
