Event description

Description

Disruption is a buzzword in our business vernacular. It characterizes industry’s battle against new waves of technology that displace the incumbents. It is also used to classify a new market where none had existed before. Critical emerging technologies today include big data, blockchain, cloud computing, IoT, AI, machine learning, digital transformation, autonomous vehicles and more. Each offers the potential to alter the way we live and conduct business on a global basis.

Today’s seemingly constant state of disruption leaves business and policy leaders wondering the implications. It also raises questions from professionals on how to stay relevant in today’s evolving business landscape.

IPN West invites you to continue the conversation on Saturday, December 2nd at 12 p.m. in Playa Vista, Los Angeles followed by time to network. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

The State of Disruption keynote will be provided by Akbar Jaffer (Chief Marketing Officer at ZorroSign). Our confirmed panelists include Ville Houttu (Founder and CEO of Vincit California), Irfan Ali (Global Director, Innovation, Architecture and Solutions for the Digital Transformation Group at Cisco), Lisa Song Sutton (Advisory Board Member of Bitcoin Nevada), Al Lalani (Founder and CEO of AnnexCloud) and Irfan Ranmal (Vice President, Data and Analytics at Hulu) with the discussion being moderated by Naushad Huda (Head of Strategy and Partnerships at Vincit).

The event is open to all friends and colleagues!
