Featuring Technology Futurist John McElligott!
Everyday there are more and more remarkable discoveries, inventions and technologies being developed. It can seem overwhelming trying to plan for every possible scenario; trying to decipher the impact each new innovation will have on our businesses, communities and our joint future. Industries that have seemed steady and unchanged are being rocked to their core. But for those of us willing to look deeper we will not only begin to understand the “why’s” but will see the unique and once in a lifetime opportunities hiding in emerging technologies and philosophies.
John McElligott will give us a lively, entertaining and informative crash course in technologies as well as how manufacturers and regions have the potential of improved performance through embracing disruption.
John will talk about how the rapid pace of new discoveries, inventions and technologies are changing paradigms, disrupting markets and shaping the future of business.
John’s talk will be followed by a panel discussion about advanced manufacturing technology implementation and integration in manufacturing firms.
Representatives from Rockwell Automation and Bosch are slated for the panel, as well as regional manufacturing leaders that will share their views and experience adopting new technologies for improved productivity.
