Strategy@Work Conference

Linking Strategy Design and Delivery to Ensure Success in a Volatile World

Conference logo

Brightline’s exclusive invite-only conference for strategy executives and thought leaders from world-class organizations to exchange insights, share experiences and build networks.

The conference will bring together world’s top leaders from the business, government, academic, and social sectors for a common mission of reducing waste caused by poor strategy implementation.

Brilliant strategy design and technology expertise only get you so far. Success in the volatile environment demands much more; and relentless execution is key.

From strategy to innovation, from disruption to growth, the faster the world changes the more you have to rethink your strategy for its successful implementation. Opportunity favors an agile mind.

The conference unpacks two key questions:

  1. How to connect strategy design and delivery in a challenging and disruptive environment?
  2. How can we adapt our delivery capability to make things happen in a volatile environment when things change overnight?
