Gen. Colin Powell and Malcolm Gladwell headline new Innovation Super Sessions

This year, get ready for engaging, thought-provoking discussion as Citrix Synergy 2017 welcomes Gen. Colin Powell and Malcolm Gladwell for the first-ever Innovation Super Sessions. Their personal stories of incredible challenge and success bring a new perspective to the premier industry conference on digital business transformation. Join us in Orlando May 23–25, and get ready to share the wisdom of these industry giants.

Inspiration and insight

For over 50 years, General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) has devoted his life to public service. Having held senior military and diplomatic positions across four presidential administrations, Powell’s deep commitment to democratic values and freedom has been felt throughout the world. He is chairman of the Eisenhower Fellowships, a cross-cultural program for emerging international leaders; and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Powell's second book, It Worked for Me (May, 2012), was an instant New York Times bestseller and reveals the lessons that shaped his life and career.

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of five New York Times bestsellers — The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw, and now, his latest, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants. He has been named one of the 100 most influential people by TIME magazine and one of Foreign Policy’s Top Global Thinkers. Malcolm is an extraordinary speaker: always on target, aware of the context and the concerns of the audience, informative and practical, poised, eloquent and warm and funny. He has an unsurpassed ability to be both entertaining and challenging.
