Featured Speaker – Carey Jaros, Chief Strategy Officer, GOJO
Over the last two decades, Carey has worked with and inside more than 50 businesses on their greatest challenges and opportunities, first as a Management Consultant at Bain & Company, and then as an Executive and Board Member at several privately held companies.
