June 4, 2015 TELUS Convention Centre, Calgary  

Agility – The Alberta Reality


As economic conditions have shifted in recent months, industry uncertainty has been rising, agility and adaptability are key to successful operations in an uncertain environment. To survive—and thrive—in these turbulent times, businesses need to take a considered approach to the issues as they emerge.


This year, that’s precisely what KPMG Ignite will deliver. Continuing its tradition of putting the critical issues—and the speakers most qualified to speak to them—front and center, we will provide deep insight and a strategic viewpoint on evolving industry realities. Leading industry thinkers will help you take stock of the issues your business faces and share ideas on how to uncover and leverage potentially hidden opportunities. With 12 sessions to choose from, you can structure your day to suit your interests—and still have time to engage in the lively debate and peer networking that remain hallmarks of this event.
