The DeGroote School of Business, in partnership with SAS Canada, is pleased to announce the third annual Digital Leadership Summit in Toronto.

Modelling the Future of Work:

How do you prepare yourself and your organization for a future – 10 years and beyond – in which work is redefined by massive technological advances and behavioural shifts across all consumer segments? How can you incorporate foresight to lead and thrive by in this environment? What are top organizations doing now?

The Digital Leadership Summit promises provocative discussions with industry and academic experts on the rapidly changing digital landscape and what this change means for traditional models of strategy and leadership across different sectors. Attendees understand that technology is changing the way we do business and will learn how to create opportunity out of digital disruption at their organization.
