Wisdom from the Top: Keynote Speaker John Winsor
The Topcoder Open and Innovation Summit are all about bringing together the top minds in the world, and there are few people better equipped to speak on open talent models and the gig economy than our keynote speaker, John Winsor. John is a global thought leader with a clear vision of the world and our future, along with the rare ability to see past the chaos of the day-to-day to the emerging patterns below. Far from just recognizing the future, though, John’s wisdom and leadership are also helping to build and improve it for everyone. His deep understanding of the potential that can be unlocked through collaboration and crowdsourcing make him the perfect voice to kick off the Innovation Summit, and we’re excited to have him with us on Thursday morning!
Can’t-Miss Panels and Thought Leadership
In addition to the main speakers, the Innovation Summit will feature a number of panels, including one with four of our very own Topcoder community members! They’ll be discussing their work and lifestyles as part of the “Passion Economy,” drawing from their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skillsets. Steve Rader of NASA will moderate the panel.
There is also a panel dedicated to the Public Sector — a discussion dedicated to the ways that open innovation and on-demand talent have helped solve problems for the government, federal agencies, and more. Other panels include a look at enterprises powered by the gig economy and how to simplify the talent pipeline through on-demand solutions. There’s something for everyone, so sign up now to secure your spot.
