Work from home. Work from the office. Work when you want. Use the devices you want. Use the apps and platforms you want. Include everyone – no matter where they are. And be just as responsive, creative, and innovative as ever. All without missing a beat. That’s the dream. What about the reality?

As enterprises define and re-define their hybrid work and return-to-office strategies, they’re facing technological, cultural, and HR challenges they’ve never seen before. There’s no playbook or business continuity plan that covers today’s reality. It’s new for everyone.

During this hard-hitting session, a panel of enterprise IT / AV / collaboration leaders will step us through the lessons they’ve learned while trying to empower and support their global workforce. You’ll hear what they tried, what worked, and what failed. You’ll hear what they wish they’d tried, what nasty surprises cropped up, and their advice on avoiding those pitfalls. You’ll hear where they are today, and what’s coming tomorrow.


  • How have enterprises empowered their home-based workers? What technology are workers using? What is the company providing and what is the worker sourcing directly?
  • What role does video conferencing play in the hybrid work environment? How will that change moving forward?
  • How has the office changed (or will it change)? Have companies changed the way they use the office? What tools are being deployed in the office?
  • How have meeting rooms changed? What problems have arisen? How are end users taking to these new approaches?
  • How has the work of the IT/AV teams changed as they support new room-based and remote video approaches?
