Leadership and the Unknown in Today's Hectic World
1 Post Office Square, 37th floor
7:30am Registration and Refreshments
8:00am - 9:30am Program
Awareness of the unknown by leadership is critical for success. How does the unknown either drive or get in the way of corporate real estate executive leaders?
While the unknown has always been relevant to leaders, the twenty-first century has upped the ante, as no one knows what's coming next.
Our corporate executive speakers will discuss how they learned to approach the unknown and are seizing the opportunity to benefit their organizations and themselves.
