The Ripple Effect

May 15, 2017


Picture a pond that is as smooth as glass. Then all of a sudden a rock is thrown into the middle of the water. Then you see ripples that reverberate out from the center touching all areas the water encompasses. The entire pond has been touched by that rock. In our world the pond is our region and the rock is technology that impacts all of our lives.

We have a lot of rocks that are on a trajectory to change how business is done. While this can appear to be overwhelming if you have a traditional company that isn’t in the tech space, there is an opportunity for you to get a little closer to the pond and see amazing advances that will change how we do business and live.

The Eastside Leadership Conference is the perfect opportunity for you to immerse yourself for a day to hear from people and companies that are changing our world. The cool thing about this opportunity is you get to hear or learn of technologies that are just being launched. You can then let these ripples of game changing advances add to your conversations at the next cocktail party or seize opportunities to use to pivot your company to new products or services, or connect with these amazing people for more in depth details.

June 2, 2017 marks the 16th year of this sell-out program. The goal of the program is to uncover the disruptive technologies and raise their visibility to advance these changes and to engage traditional industries. This year we’ll dive into 5G; Human Drone; Brain Translations; IOT; Artificial Intelligence; Human Capital, Autonomous Vehicles and Mixed Reality and how these emerging industries are transforming business structures and communities. We’ll also have a tech showcase where sponsors and start-ups will be featured over the course of the day.

Attendees can either take-advantage of these trends in their companies or help fund and accelerate the people and companies working in this space. The event is being held at the Microsoft Conference Center and runs from 7 am – 2 pm. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis with priority given to corporate tables. We invite you to join us and experience the ripple effect!
