WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE AS OUR GUEST SPEAKER:
Chitra Anand – Head of Public Relations at Microsoft Canada
Chitra Anand is at the forefront of an important new movement in the workplace: intrapreneurship. Intrapreneurs are the people within your organization who possess an entrepreneurial spirit, driving innovation, creative thinking, and new ideas. The current head of PR for Microsoft Canada, Anand has been an intrapreneur for her entire career. Her talks reveal how to foster that spirit, and how to stay on the cutting edge of market trends, technology, and consumer behaviour.
Chitra Anand is an influence and social marketer who is currently completing a PhD focused on the study of intrapreneurship. Her research examines the traits of intrapreneurs, how they navigate organizations, and why they are the key drivers of innovation. She also studies the shifts in technology, and how the way we communicate now has created a massive change in consumer behavior: the power has transferred from the business to the consumer, and marketers need a whole new perspective on content creation and storytelling.
