Seminar: Designing the Future of Your Business

You're invited

Business Seminar: 
Designing the future of your business

We are living and working in a rapidly changing world. Business tactics put in place 10 years ago have no place in this new fast paced world. 

Adaptation is the key for your business's continued success, but how will you plan for the future? How did early adopters successfully set the course for their business?

This seminar will address how your company can break down the barriers to collaboration, and introduce the tools you need for a successful transition into this future. We will cover the new aspects of attracting and retaining the best employees, and how technology will influence your business strategies. 

Join turnstone and Cospace to learn more about working in the future. 

Date: Thursday, June 14, 2012
Time: 9:30am - 4:30pm
Where: University of Texas Club
