In 2011, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen and his leadership team made one of the boldest moves ever seen in the software industry: They declared they would move their highly profitable desktop software business entirely to the cloud, disrupting the company’s business model, customer relationships and investor expectations. What followed became a Harvard Business School case study in how to pioneer a business transformation.

Join us on August 2, to hear Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, dubbed “The Turnaround Artist” by Barron’s Magazine, share lessons from Adobe’s transformation journey that can be applied to any industry.

Narayen will also share his perspectives on how the latest technology trends -- including areas like artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) -- will shape the future business landscape.

Why you should attend:

  • Learn the warning signs that your business may need to transform.
  • Hear how cutting-edge Silicon Valley technologies may change your business.
  • Get tips on getting your employees, customers and investors on board with change.
