Innovation Meets Innovation
Artificial Intelligence in the World of ETFs
 
NOVEMBER 5, 2019 
2:00 PM ET
 

Artificial intelligence has permeated our lives. From self-driving cars, movie and product recommendations to emails that finish our sentences, and robotic recruiters reading our resumes. Has AI been slow to disrupt the financial sector? Who are the winners and losers of the upcoming technological revolution? As finance professionals around the globe race to understand concepts like Natural Language Processing and Artificial Neural Networks, we will demystify the technology, its uses in the ETF ecosystem, and discuss ways to stay relevant in the race against the machines in our upcoming webcast.

BEYOND MEASURE
The Big Impact of Small Changes
 
JANUARY 30, 2019 
5:00 PM GMT
12:00 PM ET 
 
At this time of year, we tend to be ambitious to take on new challenges, create long lists to accomplish and conquer great tasks. A popular TED speaker, Dr. Margaret Heffernan [bio] challenges us for a new kind of thinking, arguing that people and organizations can have a big impact by making deceptively small changes such as using every mind on the team, rethinking mistakes and encouraging time off from work.

Dr. Heffernan is a wise and witty storyteller who fully engages her audience. Filled with interesting anecdotes, her insights into human behavior have transformed organizations. 
  • How was intelligence gathering revolutionized?
  • How did one organization increase their revenue by 15 million by instituting a short coffee break?

Heffernan investigates all these scenarios and comes to the same conclusion: big improvements can come from simply making small changes.

Join us on Wednesday, January 30 at 5:00 pm GMT, 12:00 ET, 9:00 PT as we hear directly from Dr. Heffernan regarding her thoughts on the impact of small changes.
