The Coming Tsunami

Our industry is about to undergo a rapid shift. A shift so significant, some are calling it a tsunami since it will rapidly wash away existing ways of thinking and force us to adapt once again to a whole new way of doing what we do. Joel Semeniuk keynote will paint a vivid picture of this coming shift and help give you the perspective you need to be turn that tsunami into the perfect wave that will allow you to surf these changes instead of getting swept away.
