Brian Kedzior

Senior Director, Organizational Development and Change Management Former Walgreens

Brian Kedzior gets inspired by change (it's a bit strange … he knows this), and his current mission is to make business more HUMAN. As Senior Director of Organizational Development and Change Management, Brian and his team help Walgreens leaders turn strategy into reality by identifying and developing the business capabilities needed to achieve their goals. Whether it’s process, technology, people or culture, the goal is the same; help the company grow and evolve.

 

Pre-Walgreens, Brian spent time in public relations, a handful of years at Allstate, six years growing and leading the U.S. Change Management practice at Bank of Montreal, and even some time as an independent consultant. He has spoken at events across the country on leadership and change, recently served on the Board of Directors for the Midwest Chapter of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) and is a certified, trained ninja (ok, that last one is made up).

 

Wednesday: Main Conference Day One

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

5:20 PM Keynote: Making business more human to build your new X-factor for the future: Embracing and driving change

Change is the new normal. The pace at which industries and customer expectations are evolving isn't slowing any time soon. Driving business results is now dependent on your ability to not only "manage" change, but to embrace it, feel energized by it and proactively seek to drive it. The companies that figure out how will grow and thrive. The ones that don't will experience a slow decline into obsolescence. This keynote session will walk through the industry change that Walgreens has gone through and the transformation strategies they are leveraging to navigate through the change. In addition, Brian will share his passion for leading change and bring an authentic story on the human side of transformation!
·         The need of finding new ways to drive productivity and growth in today’s drastic market change
·         Driving innovation and building an agile way of working to create tomorrow’s competitiveness
·         The human side of the transformation: Our journey of leading change amongst Walgreens’ 220,000 employees
·         Finding the new X-factor in the mind-sets of your people
