8:00 am - 9:00 am Breakfast Workshop: Women in OPEX: Female Leadership in OPEX & Business Transformation

According to the Workplace Trends Millennial leadership Survey, 91% of millennials aspire to be a leader and out of that, 52% were women. When asked about the type of leader they aspire to be, 63% chose “transformational”, which means they seek to challenge and inspire their followers with a sense of purpose and excitement.
 
This interactive breakfast workshop gives you the opportunity to connect and forge meaningful relationships with female leaders in the OPEX & Business Transformation space. Diversity in any organization is no longer a nice to have with numerous studies now highlighting that companies with diverse leadership teams are more profitable – up to 5% more profitable in fact. This workshop is a forum to create an informal network with your peers, understand how other companies are practically going about diversifying their workforce and take home practical skills to help your own career.
 
  • Develop yours and your employees personal brand and leadership skills to drive a company through a transformation and influence the bottom line
  • Create a recruitment strategy that encourages diversity, builds technological capabilities and promotes leadership qualities
  • Why the role of digital is important and how to increase the number of women with technology skill sets

12:20 pm - 12:40 pm Keynote: How precise knowledge of employee operations can simplify your transformation effort and reduce the risk. Successful business cases





According to Celonis research, almost half (45%) of C-suite executives are struggling with digital transformation, and 8 in 10 business leaders admit they fail to review internal processes when embarking on a digital transformation journey.
 
To achieve operational excellence you need to understand your internal processes and make data-based decisions about how to optimize them. Without this insight, you are operating in the dark.
 
Join Celonis at OPEX to understand how businesses are using process mining technology to identify bottlenecks in businesses processes, reduce operational friction and identify areas where digital transformation will return the greatest ROI.
