Progress is the point.

Bringing business context to Microsoft technology.

How do you drive value through digital transformation? Where does innovation fit? How do you bring a business context to your technology programs?

Join Dr Jason Fox, leading business technologists and your industry peers for an invitation only, no-nonsense look at how leading organisations from around the world deliver transformational business improvement.

DISCOVER

Dr Jason Fox will take us ‘Into the storm’ with thoughtful provocations to those leading transformation and change amidst complexity, ambiguity, paradox and doubt. Be challenged to think differently about the work you do, the context you operate in and how technology can transform your organisation.

UNDERSTAND

Learn how businesses like yours deliver better outcomes, faster. We’ll take you on a journey showcasing the opportunities of digital transformation made possible through innovation and the strategic use of Microsoft technology. Learn from industry case studies across global facilities management, resources, healthcare, online retail, financial services and the public sector.

SHARE

Meet the experts who can bring true business context to Microsoft technology. Our panel of senior executives will tackle innovation, technology and the future of work sharing candid insights into the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced across industries.

MEET DR JASON FOX

Dr Jason Fox is a wizard-philosopher masquerading as a motivational speaker, bestselling author and leadership advisor. He shows forward-thinking leaders around the world how to pioneer new and meaningful progress—beyond the default.

His clients include the senior leadership teams of Fortune 500 companies around the world, and he works particularly well with sceptical audiences who have ‘seen it all before’. In 2016 he was awarded Keynote Speaker of the Year.

When not liberating the world from delusions of progress, Jason enjoys partaking in extreme sports such as reading, sun-avoidance and coffee snobbery.
