ParadigmShift, in a new format

ParadigmShift is our signature global event that brings together courageous executives, industry thought leaders, and innovators to explore topics at the intersection of leadership, technology and culture. We deliver a curated program to forge new connections and exchange transformative ideas.

This year, we will deliver the invite-only ParadigmShift experience in a virtual format. Through the theme of Impact, our keynotes and interactive roundtable discussions will focus on what the future holds as the pace of change accelerates around us, and how to prepare, embrace and overcome impact to achieve technological excellence. Together we will learn the ways businesses can build high-performance teams and thrive in new digital-first environments, as they recover from the impact of the global pandemic.
