What are you looking forward to in your industry?
Niraj Patel, Senior Manager, Columbus — The rapid change for businesses has been exciting. I love seeing new players quickly enter an established industry with monolithic players and disrupt the way of doing business. It pushes these giants to think differently or face harsh realities without innovating speed and efficiency. If you’re not innovating, then you’re not servicing your customers.

I think we are going to see innovation and creativity at levels we have never seen from those organizations. I also think we will continue to see more changes in how people work as we continue to adapt and evolve. I am excited about helping leaders and organizations tap into this creativity and engage their employees differently.
Sean McLeod, Data & Analytics, Cincinnati — In the data and analytics industry, I look forward to the increasing popularity of machine learning. I think that machine learning will be invaluable to companies in identifying what data is meaningful to their company. By leveraging this meaningful data, companies can then connect with their customers in new and efficient ways.
