Keynote: Changing mindsets - The toughest leadership journey

The fast adoption of innovative technology combined with empathy and a focus on delivering incredible results has set a high bar in the minds of today’s consumers. Take examples such as Apple, AirBnB, Uber - these services have led to consumers having higher expectations in terms of benchmarking quality service. As mentioned above, simply having great technology or an excellent user interface isn't enough to make your company stand out from the others. Empowering your staff with the tools they need is also just as important!
