Event Details

   

Speaker: Steven Wysmuller, Global Weather Leader, IBM/The Weather Co.

The GBP’s Leaders in Sustainability Speaker Series is the leading forum to discuss and learn about key trends and best practices in all things green business. On March 8th, please join us in welcoming Steven Wysmuller of IBM/The Weather Co.  

Weather has a profound and widespread influence on business. We are all vulnerable to unforeseen weather events, and the inability to manage weather-related risk can limit business success, thwart economic development and threaten public safety. Until now, most businesses have treated weather as a force to which they can only react. Leading-edge companies today are taking a different approach, moving from a “cope and avoid ”mindset to “anticipate and execute.”

Come learn how The Weather Company, an IBM business can provide actionable weather insight to businesses across industries. Integrating weather data with traditional business data and systems can  significantly impact enterprise decision-making, and help companies find a new competitive advantage in today's marketplace.
