The 2019 Summit’s theme is “Inclusive Intelligence”. The business questions we ask and the challenges we undertake should always be the beacon of our analytics. Through open-mindedness and a holistic perspective, we can grasp the world’s increasing complexities and bring together the information, technology, and processes to understand and apply the right solutions to them.

We’ll also celebrate this year’s prize recipients at an exclusive Award Celebration Dinner (limited seating) the evening of the Summit.
