Virtual Event | Thursday, May 20 | 4 pm - 5:15 pm EDT

The construction industry is full of innovators who work across every discipline, in every country, at every leadership level. Applied Software and DADO have created a new, virtual event which shares perspectives from young leaders in construction and draws inspiration from a TED-style format. Five speakers have five minutes each to share insights on topics like adopting a growth mindset at work and navigating industry change to influencing tech adoption in your company.

Following the presentations, we'll open five breakout rooms for an open discussion with each speaker. See below for the speaker line-up. Be sure to select your breakout room preference when you register. Breakout rooms are limited. While we cannot guarantee placement in your top breakout room choice, we will do our best to accommodate.
