THEME: “Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Through YOUR Lens”

 

This year’s theme is “Artificial Intelligence (AI) – and YOUR Perspective”. We want to slow down the pace of AI chatter and spend a day letting you consider how it affects your industry and profession.

 

We have a panel of experts – describing how AI impacts their perspectives. Generational, legal, business, product and every-day users of AI – all will be represented. After the panel discussions, we will deliver break-out sessions - giving you a wide array of topics, professional development, and networking opportunities. We will end the day with a closing speaker – with a theme of “The future’s so bright, I’ve got to wear shades!”. As value added, participants have the opportunty to signup for a free professional headshot taken during the event, to ramp up their business profile.
