Exponential Transformation: Evolve Your Organization to Navigate Industry Disruption and Change the World for the Better

ExO Works and Innov8rs are inviting you to a one hour webinar focused helping you become an Exponential Organizations (ExO), understand and tackle the “corporate immune system” and transform your company’s awareness of disruptive risks and opportunities.

Hosted by Michael Leadbetter, CEO of ExO Works, the webinar will start with a “shock & awe” session about how quickly business as we know it is changing.

Michael will provide examples of tackling the “corporate immune system” while introducing live case studies from previous ExO Sprints. You will learn how other organizations are leveraging emerging technologies and taking advantage of disruption opportunities—rather than being crushed by them.

Tune in to become the disruptor, not the disrupted.

Hosted by: Michael Leadbetter
