SHIFT 2022 Program Themes

 

Leadership in digitalized world

The rapid changes the whole world has gone through in the last few years have brought the importance of leadership and change management to the forefront. As we are finding new ways to lead in a changing landscape and reshaping leadership for growth, we need to ask: what is the role of leadership in tomorrow’s organizations? Future leaders need to be inclusive and make an effort to recognize the strengths, motives, and competitive advantages of people in their organizations. In the fast-paced world we live today, long-term growth is created by understanding the value of people in the organization. At SHIFT we will discuss how to drive organizations through disruption and most importantly how to reconnect humans and technology creatively to drive future growth.

 

Climate change and technology

Climate change is not an if or when question anymore. There is no doubt that we have a crisis in our hands, but with the biggest crisis comes also the biggest opportunities. The inevitable change demands us to shift our focus on innovative ways to navigate through the crisis and find solutions to create a sustainable future for our planet and us. Branding your business as sustainable is not enough anymore as the role of businesses in tackling the climate crisis is undeniable. At SHIFT we will tackle this crisis by facilitating discussion on how to be part of the solution with innovations and technology. The time for change is not tomorrow, it is now.
