This year, we’ve organized PivotPoint around the theme of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Covering a range of topics – from the changing dynamics of talent attraction to planning for organizational growth – the event will highlight every-day pain points with real-life examples and preparation tips for the coming changes of 4IR. Rather than talk about high-level concepts, each presenter at PivotPoint will share real-life examples and actionable takeaways that can help improve organizational performance for attendees. Join us!

“PivotPoint is an incredible opportunity for manufacturers to come together and learn, ask questions, and talk through issues with peers and knowledgeable experts. I appreciate the range of topics each year, quality of speakers, and actionable takeaways.”

– Matt Williams, Process Engineering Manager, ROL Ergo
