Keynote

Career

As we progress in our careers, it's common for women to find fewer opportunities available to them, despite being more experienced than ever. As a result, we find ourselves told to double down on our personal branding to showcase our achievements and highlight our value and yet, fewer than 20% of leadership positions in tech are held by women.

  • Building the network and qualifications to have a seat in the boardroom
  • Shaking up the structures of work to benefit future generations of women in tech

Altered State: Digital Risk Management in the Wake of Business Disruption and Technology Acceleration

Sophie Ross

Global Chief Executive Officer @ FTI Technology

25 May

Non-Technical

Security

Leadership

In the span of only three years, society and business have undergone a decade's worth of change. Workforces are more dispersed than ever before in history. Digitalization has created an unprecedented and continually growing expansion of the data universe. Technology acceleration — in areas such as AI, blockchain and the metaverse — is barreling forward at a pace that neither regulation, commerce, ethics, data protection, business functions or culture can quite keep up with.

In this session, Sophie will discuss the many intersections of these issues in business today. She will address the challenges associated with reconditioning corporate culture and business strategy amid ongoing disruption, and how these overlap with the equally important digital risks that businesses must now address amid enhanced and evolving regulatory requirements.

Specifically, she'll discuss what questions leaders should be asking to ensure governance, risk and compliance are properly addressed, even in the face of fast-moving innovation and/or lack of regulatory guidance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover real-world examples and recent survey findings that demonstrate the potential fallout from missteps or lack of attention to governance, especially among companies in nascent industries such as cryptocurrency and digital assets.
  • Learn the key considerations that corporate stakeholders, across business, IT, legal, compliance and financial functions should be thinking about in the context of digital risk.
  • How your organization can continue to pursue technology advancements while maintaining a risk-resilient posture.

Leadership

Your workforce has experienced an unprecedented level of change over the past few years – from COVID-19 and the rise of truly distributed, remote organizations to economic volatility, layoffs, and increasing pressure for productivity, reliability, and innovation. Nor is this likely to end soon; in the 2020s, change appears the only constant. As a result, every leader needs to protect the psychological safety of their employees, or risk losing them to burnout.

In this talk, Stack Overflow Chief Product Officer Teresa Dietrich will discuss why effective leadership and burnout prevention are really about effective communication. She'll explain the art and science of managing expectations and providing just the right amount of context to employees and stakeholders, and detail how these critical activities keep your workforce engaged regardless of the disruption that will inevitably swirl around us.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to keep a team motivated in a world of constant change
  • How to get the most out of your team during times of restrained resources
  • Lessons from the pandemic on people management
