|10:15am||Navigating Disruption - It’s All About Timing
Disruption is defined as “a disturbance that interrupts an event, activity or process.” As 10,000 Boomers turn 65 each day, single-site care communities seek partners to maintain stability and mergers of large and small magnitude become the norm, disruption is clearly commonplace in our field of aging services. As faith-based organizations, we need to be aware, to be willing to abandon a traditional model and - most importantly - to act before it’s too late for sustainability. This keynote will inform as well as inspire you to evolve in order to succeed in the changing marketplace.
John Cochrane, CEO, HumanGood
