Inspiring innovation is one of the greatest challenges that a leader faces. How do you encourage creativity while maintaining efficiency? Embrace new technology without sacrificing stability? Challenge the status quo without endangering culture and tradition?
The water industry is one of the cornerstones of the US economy, but it must also demonstrate leadership as America faces down the challenges posed by aging infrastructure, strained resources and a less predictable climate.
Innovation is inspired by obstacles and by bold leaders who would turn adversity into opportunity. Major cities and industrial users are beginning to pioneer cutting-edge technologies and collaborative business models – the opportunities lie in inspiring other stakeholders to follow suit.
The 2018 American Water Summit will showcase how water industry leaders in the public and private sectors are inspiring innovation in finance, technology and governance. Join us in Philadelphia to shape the future of water.
