Over the course of history, technology has disrupted traditional business models (and in many cases, how we live our day to day lives). We are in the midst of the next disruption: this one brought on by the innovations in automation, an innovation that will drive opportunities and transformation as we've never seen. Regardless of your industry, change is coming. What is automation? How will it impact businesses of every size? How can corporations take advantage? What do they need to do to prepare? If you don't already have a plan in place, is it too late? These questions, and many more, are answered by Rebel in her KeyNote talk.
