The shift over to a knowledge economy has brought with it an influx of emerging technologies, shorter business cycles, savvier consumers, policy and regulatory implications, along with a number of other ever-changing factors and circumstances.

With this companies are looking at new and innovative ways in which to keep up. Business transformation can come in a number of ways. And according to a recent Forbes/KPMG study, 93% of 900 respondents have completed, are planning, or are currently going through a transformation.

Please join us and three exceptional industry pioneers to explore the process of business transformation from a full on pivot to a realignment of strategic decisions. This discussion will be moderated by 
Dan Allred, Market Manager of 
Silicon Valley Bank.
