[ BOMI 1.0 CPD • 1.5 General Hours IDCEC Approved • AIBC 1.5 Non-Core LUs ]

Join us for the first annual BUILDEX Meeting of the Minds Lunch. Network, learn, and grow with fellow industry professionals as we hear from keynote speaker, Gregg Brown.

Disruption and resilience – two buzz words we can’t get away from – and that’s for a reason. Speaking to the resilience side of the equation, Gregg will discuss how to hone your resilience in a constantly evolving, and at times ambiguous, industry.

As an industry, and as individuals, we are under tremendous pressure to keep things together when real outbreaks or metaphorical ‘outbreaks’ – such as new technology implementations – hit at rampant speeds. Agile changes are required to keep ahead and manage these types of disruptions. The impact of these changes can sidetrack you, your colleagues, stall your organization and even allow mistakes to happen.

These days, people find it extremely challenging to keep up with change in their organizations given the relentless pressure to do more – faster, better and with less. What most change models don’t address is how to improve our capability to handle change. Research has shown that resilience – the ability to handle multiple changes effectively – can be learned. All of us can develop our ability to be resilient and have fewer ‘breakdowns’ to whatever type of outbreak we may be experiencing. In this interactive, powerful, and thought-provoking keynote, you will learn how to acquire the critical mindset and techniques needed to deal with multiple changes – whether you a leader of an organization, middle management, or in a junior level position, you don’t want to miss this talk.
