Over the coming seven months, we are hosting a series of three breakfast events that look ahead to the near-future of work. We'll examine the future of performance management, the challenge of leading innovation in an established organization, and the rising importance of meta-skills such as empathy and creativity in an agile world. The events feature both PCI experts and external thought leaders. We hope you can join us.

Over 60 minutes, Melissa Quinn, formerly COO of Deloitte’s Innovation Practice (Doblin), will outline how to think about spurring this journey for yourself and others in your organization.
