The Exigent Mashup: Where analytical thinking and creativity meet.

Like cronuts or your favorite Rolling Stones and Prince music video mashup, this mashup will demonstrate how, by bringing together two diverse perspectives – left brain and right brain;  data & creativity and legal teams & the C-suite team – transformative things can happen.

10:30 am

Keynote: In Order to be Innovative and Disruptive, it Starts with Leadership.

Which side of the brain are you and what does that mean for your company, your co-workers and your career?

Utilize personalities and team brain types to understand how to creatively leverage analytics as a unifier within your organization. For example, understanding why data visualization and dashboards work well at board-level.

The reasons why business and legal “mashups” work and how you can unite data and creativity to drive revenue opportunities, process optimization and increase efficiencies.
