Machine Learning and AI have been at the core of many businesses. AI allows businesses to implement powerful solutions that increase productivity and give their customers delightful experiences. But, as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility! When it comes to AI, there are a lot of security considerations that need to be accounted for, such as user data privacy, wrong prediction implications, vulnerability to model manipulation, bias, explainability, and much more.
Does your company have an AI Security framework? Together, we’ll embark on the journey of implementing an AI framework, similar to the one we have at BILL. We’ll examine the security concerns that we faced at every step and the resulting AI security framework that it led to.
The Why: As AI and ML become more prevalent in every business, it’s important to start thinking about the AI security framework now, as opposed to waiting for the first breach or incident.
This session is for you if… you work in the space of AI or Security.
When preparing to make an important ask, such as asking for a raise, requesting an international office transfer, or pitching a bold new idea, imposter syndrome can stop us from asking for what we want, deserve, and believe in.
In this creative workshop, we will dive deeper into understanding the 5 archetypes of imposter syndrome and you will create your own tool to help you overcome the imposter whenever it rears its ugly head.
The Why: Imposter syndrome is one of the key reasons women are not asking for what they want and deserve.
This session is for… YOU if you believe imposter syndrome has at one point held you back, or is currently holding you back, from asking for the things you deserve and living the life you want.
The world has experienced its fair share of shared trauma in the last three years. On top of that, individual struggles like health issues or the passing of a loved one mean your employees and colleagues are no strangers to experiencing turbulence in their lives.
While advice on how to react to specific hardships is plentiful, we often look for them because we’re worried about saying or doing the right thing. Truly supporting those who are suffering through a multitude of issues requires us to decenter ourselves to understand different perspectives in terms of communication and support.
Content Warning: Please note that this session may cover topics that some may find uncomfortable to engage in including mental health and health conditions.
This masterclass is a game-changer! Too often brilliant technical and scientific minds fail to get their ideas past the decision-makers in their organization because business leaders don’t understand the benefit.
In this session, you will discover the secrets of speaking to the top of any organization. You will walk away with a model that ensures the business listens when you talk tech.
The Why: Too many brilliant ideas fail because decision-makers just don’t ‘get it’. Why? Because the presenter didn’t share the key information in the first 60-seconds. This masterclass changes all that.

As organizations’ budgets go under greater scrutiny, Tech Leaders are increasingly becoming reliant on their team’s ability to make informed decisions and manage uncertainty through their awareness, understanding, and knowledge of risk. Risk management is crucial to New Frontier operations. Organizations must recognize their risks and respond swiftly to changing conditions.
The ability to recognize the potential for loss, make intelligent decisions based on information, and balance the analysis of prospective risks and benefits are two ways to mitigate risk, but both are flawed.

Event-driven microservices architecture is a software design approach that emphasizes the use of small, independent, and loosely-coupled services that communicate with each other via events. In this architecture, services are responsible for processing specific business events, and they communicate with each other asynchronously through event streams.
The event-driven architecture is based on the idea of an event, which is a significant occurrence in the system that other services can act on. Events can be generated by user actions, system events, or other services. Services can subscribe to specific types of events and perform actions based on them. This approach promotes decoupling and enables each service to operate independently and in isolation. In the market, there are event-driven services in the cloud: AWS Event Bridge, Azure Event Grid, and Google EventArc that provide intelligent routing and filtering capabilities to every event scenario and ensure that applications focus on core business logic rather than worrying about event routing.

A critical ingredient of high-performance in any organization is a culture of psychological safety. Belonging is essential to humans. In times of social unrest, anxiety, post-pandemic fear and overall life stress, it’s vital that organizations create a way to galvanize support and manage complex change to create a culture where every employee, regardless of their background, feels that they belong.
Because the need to belong is universal and fundamental, focusing on it has the power to draw in the entire workforce, even those who might feel excluded from — or threatened by — current DE&I directives.
Psychological safety at work doesn’t mean that everybody is nice to each other all the time. It means that people feel free to “”brainstorm out loud,”” voice half-finished thoughts, openly challenge the status quo, share feedback, and work through disagreements together — knowing that leaders value honesty, candor, and truth-telling, and that team members will have one another’s backs. It is an atmosphere in which people fearlessly engage, question, experiment, and deliver value rather than fearing, blaming, and spending time protecting themselves. In this workshop, you’ll develop skills for growing psychological safety in yourself, your teams, and your organization.
The Why: Organizations that focus on creating environments centered around promoting psychological safety see increased employee retention, improved productivity and performance, greater creativity and innovation and an elevated employee experience.
So, who is responsible for creating such safety? All of us! When we model and cultivate psychological safety, we enable greater transparency, closer relationships, improved collaboration, and better outcomes.

They’ll learn how to shift from traditional linear models into quick cycles of experimentation so they can quickly integrate IP strategy into their product development with higher quality and expected ROI outcomes. They will leave feeling confident about their next steps towards creating high impact projects that innovate efficiently without sacrificing viability or intellectual property protection.
This session is for…Technology leaders, Startup Leaders, Product Leaders, Scrum Masters.
