2022 HMG Live! Multi-Cloud Executive Leadership Summit - DIGITAL

As enterprise companies expand their use of the cloud, they typically rely on multiple cloud providers to meet their needs and to achieve greater redundancy and business continuity. For companies that adopt a multi-cloud strategy, most executives cite best-of-breed opportunities and cost optimization as their primary objectives, according to a study by IDG. In this executive panel discussion, top business technology executives and industry experts share their recommendations for leveraging a multi-cloud environment to get the most bang for their buck while enabling the digital enterprise to fire on all cylinders. 

 


 

“Trust changes everything for you as a leader, for your IT team and for your relationships.”

- Stephen M.R. Covey


    “If I were to choose one group to collaborate with, one conference that I could go to in a year, it would be an HMG Strategy Executive Leadership Summit. The content is rich, the insights are useful, and the connections are amazing.” 

    Cynthia Stoddard, SVP & CIO, Adobe

A sought-after and compelling keynote speaker and advisor on trust, leadership, ethics, and high performance, he speaks to audiences around the world. He is the New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust, and coauthor of the #1 Amazon bestseller Smart Trust.

Stephen passionately delivers that message and is skilled in enabling leaders and organizations to experience the dividends of high trust. Audiences and organizations alike resonate with his insightful, relevant approach to real-time issues that affect their immediate and long-term performance.

      He is the former CEO of Covey Leadership Center, which, under his stewardship, became the largest leadership development company in the world.

Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, to become one of the two most influential business books of the 20th Century, according to CEO Magazine. A Harvard MBA, he joined Covey Leadership Center as a Client Developer and later became National Sales Manager and then President and CEO. Under Stephen’s direction, the company grew rapidly and profitably, achieving Inc. 500 status. As President and CEO, he nearly doubled revenues to over $110 million while increasing profits by 12 times. During that period, both customer and employee trust reached new highs and the company expanded throughout the world into over 40 countries, which greatly increased the value of the brand and company. The company was valued at only $2.4 million when Stephen was named CEO, and, within three years, he grew shareholder value to $160 million in a merger he orchestrated with then Franklin Quest to form FranklinCovey.

      Over the years, Stephen has gained considerable respect and influence with executives and leaders of Fortune 500 companies as well as with mid- and small-sized private sector and public sector organizations he’s consulted.

Williams. His 1992 bestseller Paradigm Shift helped coin a seminal management concept and his 1995 hit The Digital Economy changed thinking around the world about the transformational nature of the Internet and two years later he defined the Net Generation and the “digital divide” in Growing Up Digital. His 2000 work, Digital Capital, introduced seminal ideas like “the business web” and was described by BusinessWeek as “pure enlightenment." Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything was the best-selling management book in the United States in 2007 and translated into over 25 languages. The Economist called Macrowikinomics a “Schumpeterian story of creative destruction” and the Huffington Post said the book is “nothing less than a game plan to fix a broken world.” Over 30 years he has introduced many seminal concepts that are part of contemporary understanding.

    Multi-Cloud:  Optimizing a Multi-Cloud Environment to Power Today's Digital Business

    1:00 - 1:15 PM

    Welcome and Introduction 

    Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

    EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW:  The New Leadership Paradigm: Why Tech Executives Must Shift from a ‘Command-and-Control’ Model to ‘Inspire and Trust’ to Win the Global War for Talent and in the Marketplace

    Stephen M. R. Covey, best-selling author interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

    The world has changed dramatically since March 2020 and so, too, have organizational cultures. The shift to a work-from-home environment has empowered employees who want to dictate how, when and where they work. Moreover, in a flat screen meeting environment where all participants are viewed as equals, employees don’t want to follow orders – they want to be part of the brain-trust that helps to solve critical business and customer challenges and to influence the strategic trajectory of the company.

    In this compelling Executive Interview with HMG Strategy President and CEO Hunter Muller, Stephen M.R. Covey, best-selling author of The Speed of Trust and his forthcoming book Inspire and Trust, shares why a ‘Command-and-Control’ leadership style no longer works and how an ‘Inspire and Trust’ leadership approach can encourage employees to be more collaborative and creative and to maximize their potential. Covey, who is the Co-Founder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust practice, also frames “the two epic imperatives of our time” to help guide leaders on creating a thriving culture that can help attract, grow, retain, engage and inspire the best people in the global war for talent and to successfully collaborate and innovate in order for companies to win in the marketplace.

    Don Tapscott, Co-Founder & Executive Chairman, Blockchain Research Institute

    The first era of the digital age spanned the rise of mainframes, minicomputers, the personal computer, fax, the Internet, mobility, the World Wide Web, social media, the mobile web, the cloud and Big Data.

We want to give every person with the ambition to be technically creative the ability to be technically creative. We want to liberate intelligent people from menial work, so they can focus on solving the problems of tomorrow.
