    Details: Linda Sanford, IBM Senior Vice President, Enterprise Transformation, will share her observations on what it takes to be an effective, transformative leader in our fast-changing global marketplace.

    The current economic climate represents a different kind of downturn than before – industry landscapes are being restructured dramatically, with firms failing or merging nearly overnight. And yet this period of discontinuity is also a period of opportunity – for exceptional leaders. Over the next couple of years, new leaders will emerge who have demonstrated the ability to guide their organizations through a challenging period and arrive stronger on the other side.

    What characteristics will these leaders share? How will they apply technology creatively to be better leaders? How will they inspire their people to accomplish game-changing moves in a time of uncertainty?

    The leader of IBM’s transformation efforts will reflect on these and other questions, based on her own experience at IBM and working with change leaders at organizations around the world.
