Main Stage - The Future of Work

Corporate cultures are shifting dramatically.  The world was forced to find new ways to engage employees, build relationships, sell their services, manage partners and how to work – in a very short amount of time.  As we settle into news ways of doing business, we explore how these short-term adjustments impact the overall corporate culture, and some of the most important areas executives need to be mindful of as they explore work from anywhere policies and impacts to travel and meetings policies/budgets.
