Keynotes, Sessions & Seminars
MODEX's 2020 Keynote Speakers provide a wide range of viewpoints. There aren’t many events where you can hear real-world case studies from thought leaders on topics ranging from stories of leadership to how automation and AI are not competitors to humans, but are part of an extended, augmented human organism.
Remember to draft some specific questions, as well, to take advantage of the Q&A period that usually follows each keynote.
