JERSEY CITY, N.J., Aug. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AvePoint (NASDAQ: AVPT), the most advanced platform to optimize SaaS operations and secure collaboration, today announced it will host business leaders across all industries at its #shifthappens Conference on October 10-11, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington D.C. As the digital workplace landscape rapidly evolves, shaped by a convergence of technological innovation and transformative shifts in business dynamics, the #shifthappens Conference will provide helpful insights and inspiration to help businesses remain competitive and adaptable. Featuring three comprehensive learning tracks, #shifthappens Conference 2023 will feature over 30 dynamic sessions, offering thought leadership discussions, exclusive networking opportunities with industry experts, and insightful presentations showcasing real-world business value examples.
“There is tremendous opportunity in today’s digital workplace, from powering AI ready information management, to harnessing AI for innovation and efficiency, to managing the flow of information across an organization and protecting critical business data,” said Dr. Tianyi Jiang (TJ), CEO and Co-Founder, AvePoint. “However, there are challenges that must be overcome to protect organizations from emerging threats while empowering workers to reach their full potential. AvePoint’s #shifthappens Conference is an opportunity for technologists, futurists and industry leaders to share important ideas and experiences to advance the digital workplace.”
Best-selling author, trained futurist and one of the world’s leading authorities on leadership, the future of work and employee experience, Jacob Morgan, will headline the two-day conference with a keynote talk on how to lead with vulnerability and competence to make an impact at work, and why this is even more critical as the digital workplace continues to evolve.
“I’m thrilled to keynote AvePoint’s #shifthappens Conference and explore how current and aspiring leaders can be more vulnerable to create trust, drive performance, unlock the potential of others, and lead through change,” said Jacob Morgan, best-selling author of 5 books including his most recent, Leading with Vulnerability. “There’s no doubt that sharing insights from over 100 CEOs and the 14,000 employees surveyed will motivate and inspire the attendees, while also transforming their views on leadership, especially in today’s digital workplace.”
The rapid adoption of cloud computing, rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and shift to embracing remote and hybrid work models is dramatically shifting how employees communicate and collaborate. #shifthappens Conference attendees will hear real stories from companies across a wide range of industries about how they overcame their digital workplace transformation challenges, how to take full advantage of AI and machine learning, and how to secure collaboration.
