    General Session - Creating Value In A Transformational World · Grand Ballroom BC
    · Ian Khan

    Today we live in quickly changing times. Just a decade ago, smartphones were just emerging, and we were far from ideas such as connected homes, AI and other things that have rapidly emerged as faces of technology. In this era dominated by technology we will face even greater changes affecting the way we work, live and plan our lives. It will also cause a dramatic change in the things we are passionate about. To help explain the main forces that shape this era, including key technologies, keynote speaker Ian Khan will share how the promotional industry will change as cryptocurrency, connected devices and smart cities gain traction with consumers, while providing inspirational, insightful and actionable strategies that are a must for personal and business success.

    Why would transnational criminal enterprises and foreign intelligence services want to target your organization's data or intellectual property? Are you prepared, or are you the next victim? During retired FBI Special Agent Scott Augenbaum’s career, almost all his hundreds of victims never expected to become victims, because they didn't believe they had anything worth stealing.
