Location:  Myers University Club

Cleveland,
OH

Description: NEOSA and REI@Weatherhead presents public forums hosting
regional and national thought leaders to discuss transformational technologies
and ideas that will be instrumental in shaping the future.

These audience-interactive discussions will focus on the impact of new and
disruptive technologies and trends - helping us to visualize the potential and
possibilities as well as the risk inherent in all change. Why is this
important? We believe that we should challenge ourselves to think about what the
future will look like in ten years and how that affects our decisions today. If
we have a vision of the future, we can capitalize on the resources we already
possess – as individuals and as a region. And we think that the more aware we
all are about what’s happening in the region, the better prepared we are to
forge the alliances, partnerships and networks we’ll need to implement our
future visions – again, as individuals and as a region. The program will be
moderated by a regional University President. Each member of the four person
panel will provide a 10 minute overview of their work, with a non-technical
emphasis for a general business audience. The remaining portion of the 1½ hour
program will be devoted to discussion between the presenters and the audience.
