Keynote Speakers

Michael Urlocker has been a top-ranked technology investment analyst for more than twenty years. His specialization? Disruptive Innovation. As both a Chartered Financial Analyst and an Electrical Engineer, Michael is uniquely qualified to educate us on the challenges and rewards of new and disruptive technologies like autonomous drones in the supply chain. Drone delivery is happening now, and Michael is the person best-positioned to bring us all up to speed.

It's almost impossible for supply chain companies to thrive without technology and innovation. Identifying and evolving with industry trends and finding new ways to keep ahead of the curve is imperative. John Cassis presents positive ways to embrace change, ignite new potential and launch into success. With John's special blend of warmth, motivation and humor, you'll be able to identify with the challenges of change in a positive, pro-active manner.

At some point in his career prior to being named President & CEO, Mr. Brereton has been the leader of literally every department at TECSYS with the exception of finance: the list includes software development, product management, services, sales and marketing. There is no one more qualified to give an insider's look at what makes TECSYS tick, and no one more adept at providing a down-to-earth, and often humorous, summary of the current state of the company. Peter is known for his memorable anecdotes that are equal parts entertainment and teachable moments. Why would this year's update be any different?
