The AWS Summit | ExecLeaders event is an exclusive, in-person event at 155 Bishopsgate in London. The event brings business leaders and technology innovators together to explore the theme of ‘Breaking Barriers’.
We live in interesting times, with every industry being reinvented. There are many inspirational stories on how companies, large and small, are doing this. But let’s acknowledge that these are tough times – geopolitical instability, concerns with the environment, rising interest rates and energy costs, stubbornly high inflation, a shortage of talent and skills, and new competitors emerging for every industry. Once dependable supply chains are now witnessing shortages which have increased lead times to 70% longer than pre-pandemic.
These concerns have led modern leaders to recognise that the only way to deal with this complexity is to try something, measure the response and then adapt or scale accordingly. They recognise that planning and best practices have their place, but much of what they are doing has never been done before. Our hope is that we can help grow these leaders from a minority of less than 30% to a more pervasive style of leadership.
It’s for this reason that the theme of the ExecLeaders event is Breaking Barriers. We’ll look at how future ready organisations are balancing short term issues with the ability to grow. We’ll share real insights from customers on themes that underpin their organisations.
This event will explore how businesses are addressing these themes, taking a look at some of the underlying needs including bold leadership, talent & culture, data, AI and ML, sustainable operations, and emerging technologies.
