Wresting the Digital Lion:  How to Tame Business Challenges using Digital Solutions

The digital landscape has never been scarier and more critical to success at the same time.  Our impulse is often to bury our heads under the covers and hope this digital tidal wave washes over us.  This session flips the digital discussion from “technology’s terms” to business terms.  We look at business challenges and plug in digital solutions that solve our business problems (instead of creating more headaches).

Speaker:  Lynn Randall
