2018 Highlights

The Reimagining Work Summit: Fall 2018 brought together an exclusive group of executives and thought leaders to discuss how companies are accelerating innovation, adapting to volatile market demands, and increasing operational efficiencies.


See highlights from the ReWork Fall Summit 2018 and from the ReWork Spring Summit 2018






The Reimagining Work Summit will bring together a curated community of forward-thinking thought leaders, including Fortune 500 executives, policy makers, academics, and others to discuss how to drive workplace transformation and create a company-wide culture of innovation.Executives are faced with rapidly evolving, volatile market demands and new, unfamiliar ways to meet them. Their current business is not always equipped to handle what is required to compete and win in the future. The skills the business needs to meet the demands of the market are drastically changing and businesses need to innovate and adapt with agility. Join us to hear how some of the world’s leading companies are doing just that.The event kicks off with an exclusive experience at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum!
