Presentation Title: Thriving in the Never Normal – From Digital Transformation to Always on Adaptability

Presentation Overview: Nobody had a novel coronavirus on their digital transformation BINGO card. And yet, it was the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic turmoil — rather than AI, blockchain, cloud or the Internet of Things (or even competitive or regulatory pressure) — that drove a host of both small and sweeping changes in how business gets done, practically overnight. How are these changes reshaping the energy industry? And more importantly, how can oil and gas leaders ensure that their organizations are ready for the coming decade that promises to bring equal parts uncertainty, innovation and opportunity.

In his Dynamic Risk Partners Conference keynote, business futurist and digital transformation expert Greg Verdino will explore how the future will force us to reimagine work, reinvent business, and rethink how our own organizations prepare for and respond to always-on change. Tune in live for Greg’s eye-opening ideas about:

  • How any leader can make the mind-shift necessary to create the future for their organization and the industry
  • What the future will look like as the “never normal” decade ahead ushers in wave after wave of disruption in technology, the economy and society
  • What adaptability strategies oil and gas leaders can adopt in order to thrive in an age when everything is unexpected.
