Event Details

  

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

The greatest challenges of our time? Climate change, climate risk and how to increase the resilience of businesses, society and individuals. We are all vulnerable to unforeseen weather events, and the inability to manage climate-related risk can limit business success, thwart economic development, and threaten public safety. Leading-edge companies are taking a different approach, moving from a reactive mindset to one that is proactive and can “weather” the storm.

 

Join us to welcome back Steve Wysmuller of the IBM Services Weather Analytics team as we explore the role of weather and climate risk on business, and how the IBM Services business provides actionable weather insight to businesses across industries. Integrating weather and climatic 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.

 

This event is part of the GBP’s “Leaders in Sustainability” Speaker Series… the leading forum to discuss and learn about key trends and best practices in all things green business.
