Linda Bernardi, Chief Innovation Officer, Cloud and IoT, IBM

Disruption creates resistance. Could it also be that some of these obstacles and resistances are in our own minds? Are we resistant to disruption? This and much more when we see each other at the Summit. What is not a disputable item is the amazing and unstoppable power that WOMEN in Technology possess!
