Share Article

Disruptive technologies - including Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Cryptocurrencies, and the Internet of Things - will force a radical strategic reorientation for tomorrow's organizations. This year's RECONVERGE:G2 conference will focus on the values systems required of leaders to confront and profit from the coming Rogue Wave Convergence™ of these disruptive technologies.

Global business leaders of all stripes and in all industries must prepare for the coming Rogue Wave Convergence™ of disruptive technologies. This year's RECONVERGE:G2 Intelligence Leadership Symposium will bring together corporate P&L leaders, technology entrepreneurs, and intelligence analysts from multiple industries and disciplines to confront and plan for the transformational impacts of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Cryptocurrencies, and the Internet of Things.

This year's conference will focus its attention on "Values Disruption: How Intelligence Analysts Make Business Leaders More Teachable and Awaken Cultures of Humility." The 2018 RECONVERGE:G2 Intelligence Leadership Symposium will be held April 26-28, 2018 at the Fluno Center on the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus.

"The impact of disruption from technology will transform the nature of our organizations, our governments, and our personal lives," explains Aurora WDC Founder and Chairman Arik Johnson. "Without honing a set of core values - humility, teachability, and empathy - leaders will struggle to cope with this disruption to their business models and ongoing relevance to the changing world around them. At RECONVERGE:G2 this year, our objective is to give organizational leaders the perspective they will need to stay ahead of disruption and succeed no matter what the future holds."

Instead of a "conference of speakers", the agenda is designed more like a three-day, hands-on workshop, said Johnson. Attendees, both in person and streaming online, will immediately apply tools and techniques to their own business problems. The event will culminate in a full-day competitive simulation (AKA, business wargame) exploring multiple possible scenarios of disruptive technology applications over the next three years.

Organizations represented at this year's RECONVERGE:G2 Intelligence Leadership Symposium include: IBM Watson, Deloitte, Northrup Grumman, CUNA Mutual Group, Brewer Science, NetApp, West Monroe Partners, Cognizant, Bose Corporation and others.
