Morning Keynote Speaker:
Erica Dhawan – Author, strategist & the world’s foremost expert on collaboration and connectional intelligence

Called the third wave of intelligence after IQ and emotional intelligence, Connectional Intelligence is the ability to drive innovation and breakthrough results by harnessing the power of relationships and networks. “Successful leaders cultivate it; big thinkers who produce the latest technology revel in it; people who aim to change the world—one small step or large-scale project at a time—know that lasting results are impossible without it. It’s a type of intelligence all of us are not only capable of nurturing, but one we should be prioritizing.”
