Over the past year at Microsoft Envision, the digital series we co-produce with Accenture and Avanade, we’ve heard from business leaders about how organizations can persevere in a time of ongoing disruption, as well as what it takes to build agility and foster innovation.

Speakers this season have included former PepsiCo Chair and CEO Indra Nooyi, LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, and Julie Sweet, chair and CEO of Accenture, along with tennis icon Billie Jean King.

The conversation will continue during the Season 2 finale on Tuesday, June 14. There we’ll be joined by Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, who’ll talk with Judson Althoff, Microsoft Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, about key themes from this week’s WEF Annual Meeting, as well as steps that business leaders can take to drive equitable growth and improve the state of the world.

During the episode, we’ll explore how leaders can prepare their organizations for the future with the help of emerging technologies. I’ll describe the industrial metaverse and the value it can deliver — as well as the importance of keeping the metaverse safe, secure and open.

Accenture Group Chief Executive and Chief Technology Officer Paul Daugherty will also share insights from Accenture’s Technology Vision 2022 report on the “Metaverse Continuum” and how the metaverse will remake the way we conduct business in the years to come.

In addition, attendees will hear from Kate Varah, Emma Keith and Toby Coffey of the National Theatre in London, who’ll share how they’re using mixed reality in innovative ways to transform storytelling and make the performing arts more accessible.

I hope you’ll take part in the discussion. Microsoft Envision is free to attend. To register, visit envision.microsoft.com.
