You're invited to an exclusive VIP event hosted by Toptal.
Come join us to learn about how to Innovate with Agile Talent.
Jon Younger, the Author of "Agile Talent" will be the keynote speaker. Jon Younger is the founder of the Agile Talent Collaborative, a non- profit organization and the author of the new book Agile Talent (Harvard, 2016). Jon holds a Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Toronto, where he was an Ontario Fellow and Canadian Council scholar. He has co-authored five books, and many book chapters and articles in publications such as the Harvard Business Review.
More than ever, technology executives at enterprise companies face unique challenges to drive innovation. Recent studies have shown that:
- 71% of CIOs state it's a challenge finding the right balance between innovation and operational excellence (IDG)
- 2 out of 3 CIOs believe there's a talent crisis (Gartner)
- 55% don't believe their talent recruitment system can meet the demands of their multi-faceted organization (Argyle Executive Forum)
- The Intuit 2020 report predicts that 40% of the American workforce (that's 60 million people) will be independent workers (freelancers, contractors and temporary workers).
There's a transformational shift happening in the labor market and more than ever, leaders need to be thinking about how embracing a blended workforce can be a huge competitive advantage. At this event, you'll get an inside look at how executives think about driving innovation with agile talent.
This is an invite only event for founders, leaders and executives in product, engineering, IT and digital marketing. At our VIP event, you'll get to network with 50 of your executive peers and also enjoy complimentary sushi and drinks.
