Digital Disruption  Accelerated  Here it is!


Digital disruption is here – and has been accelerated with the emergence of COVID-19.  Today’s challenges have affected all of us in profound and personal ways.

We are experiencing seismic, unprecedented business and social impacts in the economy and across every industry. There is accelerated disruption in supply chains, manufacturing, and production schedules. Industries will respond and ultimately recover or -- change forever --  at different times. What does the future hold for 2021?  And beyond?   

DFW*ATW is embracing the topic of digital disruption at our signature program, “The Executive Leadership Forum”.

2020 will be emblazoned in our memory for a multitude of reasons. Our society and humanity are compelled now to address both age-old and unforeseen issues and opportunities which have come to the forefront in the midst of several crises. Join Anne Chow, CEO, AT&T Business, as she shares insights from leading through 2020. She’ll explain how authenticity is our greatest superpower for championing equality, breaking barriers and busting biases, and driving positive change that is necessary for transformation.
