Keynotes Guy Kawasaki and Sekou Andrews to Inspire Innovation and Artistry at North America CACS in ISACA’s 50th Anniversary Year

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Guy Kawasaki, Silicon Valley-based author, speaker, entrepreneur, and
evangelist, will deliver the opening keynote to ISACA’s North
America CACS Conference
for information systems audit, assurance,
control, governance and security professionals, taking place 13-15 May
2019 in Anaheim, California.

In his presentation, “The Art of Innovation,” Kawasaki will focus on how
to create innovative services and products using tactical and practical
techniques, using examples as diverse as ice making and digital
photography to expose the truths of innovation. Key principles include:
jumping to the next curve, breaking down the barriers, and thinking
digitally and acting analogically. His keynote presentation will inspire
attendees to increase their ability to be agile and innovative.

Closing the conference will be Sekou Andrews, Poetic Voice and CEO of
SekouWorld, Inc. A former schoolteacher, this two-time national poetry
slam champion is a self-described “Poetic Voice”: a speaker and artist
who seamlessly blends the value of a business keynote with the
inspiration of a powerful spoken-word poetry performance. In Andrews’
closing keynote, “D.i.Y. Disruption,” he will teach attendees that as
their enterprises pursue the “big I” of Innovation through adopting
technologies, they should see through the “little i” perspective of an
innovator by disrupting themselves from within.

IT audit, risk, cybersecurity and governance professionals will gather
at the Anaheim Convention Center to examine the transformational roles
they play in their organizations. Attendees will learn solutions and
strategies, including how assurance, risk, governance and security
professionals can advance their careers and impact their enterprises.
