Meet our BeSpatial'20 Keynote Speaker - Biju Misra

January 24, 2020 4:43 PM | Anonymous

We are thrilled to announce Biju Misra, Director, Transformation/Operations at Enbridge, a recognized transformation and strategic leader as the keynote speaker on day 1 of our annual BeSpatial event.

As competing pressures, disruptive tools and a dizzying array of new options force organizations into the future, professionals in most disciplines need to be resilient. They need to think strategically to prepare themselves and their organizations for a bumpy road ahead. The ongoing digital transformation changes everything we do.

Our 2-days conference & expo is designed to help geospatial and information professionals to:

  • power their business by turning data into knowledge 
  • develop geospatial data and technology mindset
  • determine how to optimize business results by implementing location intelligence
  • prepare for the next wave of geospatial technologies
  • find out what new developments will influence the digital transformation
  • prepare for new types of jobs which will require new skills and a high degree of adaptability

At BeSpatial'20, Biju will share his perspective on transformative change, innovation and leadership. He will highlight the importance of teamwork and building high impact teams, critical to enable resilience as we tackle the challenges and opportunities entering the 2020s!

Insight Statement - Biju Misra

We are living in times of unprecedented disruption changes in the world around us. Innovation coupled with globalization and interconnectedness is fueling disruption which in turn is driving change in how we live, work, and play. The pace of change is much faster than our ability to absorb. The pace of change will only keep increasing.

In this increasingly demanding and changing world, it is easy to become overwhelmed and have varying degrees of personal or professional setbacks. How we cope with setbacks in our lives play a major role in our mind and body well being. Building our resilience muscle is key to cope with setbacks and resilient people are able to leverage their skills to cope and recover.

Everyone reacts differently, however, the key is not to dwell on how far we have fallen but rather how high we can bounce back and be better and stronger than before. Resilient people don't let change or challenge stop their pursuit of their purpose and if anything, they keep going with a belief that tomorrow will be better than today. In many ways resilience is more about letting go and learning to grow. The positive side of all this is that resilience can be learnt through understanding and deliberate practice. 

If you’re eager to be part of this exciting agenda, you are invited to submit for a presentation opportunity at the geospatial and information community's annual Ontario event. Click here to submit your abstract.
