Join Our Session

Leadership Lessons Learned
October 14
1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Join NTT DATA’s senior vice president Chris Merdon as he shares a unique perspective on leadership lessons learned while attending survival school in the Utah desert in an entertaining storytelling session format.

“Imagine 100+ temperatures, no technology, mountain wilderness and desert washes … and a small band of strangers each equipped with a blanket, poncho, water bottle and a knife while tasked with surviving for a week. As a former county CIO, elected official and now private industry executive, I’ve had my share of leadership lessons, but none hit home more than those I learned the week I spent at survival school in the Utah desert. Join me as I share lessons in leadership and survival I learned during week of hardship, hunger and humility.”
