We all have limiting beliefs, especially when it comes to sharing our more creative skills within the workplace: I can’t share my ideas, I’ll look stupid. How do I discover data and derive insights, when I have no buy-in from my boss/team/company? How do I ‘fly’ when my professional responsibilities have clipped my wings?! Good news: Limiting beliefs are not genetic, they’re learned and we can unlearn them. In this interactive talk, Tania Katan, author of the bestselling book: Creative Trespassing (Random House, 2019) and co-creator of the #ItWasNeverADress campaign, will share stories from the frontlines of a limit-disruptor and teach you creative strategies for transforming your limitations into inspiration to fuel—rather than sap—your work.

The phrase “Egyptian archaeology” conjures up images of tombs, temples, and of course King Tut’s golden mask. Yet understanding how ancient Egypt’s society functioned and how ancient Egyptians lived requires that we turn to the less visually compelling (and far more numerous) aspects of the material record. Excavations at the Pyramid Age settlement site of Kom el-Hisn and the slightly later town of Elephantine Island provide us some perspectives on how this might be practiced , what we might learn and how Business Intelligence is helping us.

As existing and new Business Intelligence solutions add Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and more advanced Predictive Analytics are we seeing a significant shift in the BI applications that organizations are developing and using? At the same time, as more organizations look to move to the Cloud, are cloud based BI solutions replacing their on-premise counterparts and hybrid BI solutions really viable?
These will be some of the discussion points in what promises to be a lively and fascinating panel discussion with BI leaders from three major organizations. The panel will be adjudicated by InfoSol CEO, Paul Grill and you will have the opportunity to submit your questions before and during the discussion.
