With highly engaged discussions, Linda raises the comfort level audiences have with embracing disruptive technologies. She shares an enthusiastic outlook on how a wide range of sectors such as finance, retail, manufacturing, and healthcare can futureproof their business and thrive in the disruptive economy.
