Innovate, Disrupt, Lead

We are excited to announce our keynote speaker this year, Linda Bernardi. Ms. Bernardi, Disruptor/Catalyst/Large Enterprise Provocateur is the former chief innovation officer for IBM. In her presentation for CTAA EXPO, she will guide us on a discovery of how technology is going to alter the way we do business as mobility providers.

We say we are in the transportation business, but technology is the link between any business and its customers. Your business is a technology business whether you want it to be or not, and the key to success is harnessing the technology disruption we are in the midst of.

Join us at the keynote on Wednesday, May 25 at 10:45 a.m., and learn from Ms. Bernardi about the disruptive technologies that are transforming our industry and how to adapt to and thrive in the new technological scene.
